Fall 2015 STEM Education Seminar Schedule – last updated on 17 July 2015

The DBER Group's STEM Education Seminar is offered simultaneously at TWO sites - on the City Campus AND on the East Campus!


During the Fall 2015 semester, the STEM Education Seminar will be simultaneously offered at TWO sites.

The in-person presentations will be hosted on Thursdays at 2:00 PM in Bessey Hall, room 109, on the City Campus.

These presentations will be simultaneously virtually available (i.e., via internet connection)  Hardin Hall, room 202, on the East Campus.

Both sites will have one or members of the DBER Group organizational team who will facilitate the discussion at each site and communication between attendees at both sites.

We hope that this dual-site arrangement will help to make these important, timely, and thought-provoking STEM education presentations and discussions more accessible to faculty, staff, postdocs, students, and other interested individuals.  We look forward to seeing you at one of the sites!
