Spring 2014 STEM Education Seminar Schedule – last updated on 23 January 2014


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


During the Spring 2014 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 Andrews Hall, room 228, 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 new 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!
