Spring 2015 STEM Education Seminar Schedule – last updated on 11 January 2015


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


The in-person presentations will be hosted on Thursdays at 2:00 PM in Bessey Hall, room 219, on the City Campus.  Room changes are possible; so, please check the schedule below for possible room changes for a specific talk.  Changes will also be announced through the DBER Group's listserv.

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

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!
