Roundtable on Systemic Change in Undergraduate STEM Education


Project Scope:

The Roundtable on Systemic Change in Undergraduate STEM Education will enable leaders from across the STEM policy, research, and implementation communities of higher education to 1) learn from each other's efforts, 2) work more efficiently to address complex issues related to undergraduate STEM education, and 3) make collective decisions about future policies and priorities as well as plan their own work based on deeper understanding of the perspectives of other stakeholders in the system. The Roundtable will foster ongoing discussion of the challenges to and strategies for improving undergraduate STEM education among federal officials, the business community, policy makers, educators, and academic scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. It will provide major federal and national stakeholders with the foundational knowledge of the evidence base on systemic reform in higher education while fostering ongoing interdisciplinary discussions by gathering experts from the major stakeholder groups. Roundtable members will learn from each other and other invited experts about broad systemic issues such as policies and practices that can facilitate or impede reform, effective approaches to supporting students' learning and engagement, the needs of faculty members as such efforts move forward, how institutional leaders can encourage and support improvements, and strategies for identifying and generating resources to support reforms. 
The major goals of the Roundtable are to:
• make participating members aware of current evidence across multiple disciplines that can be used to guide systemic reforms in undergraduate STEM education (USE).
• provide a formal mechanism for ongoing collaboration and communication among stakeholders.
• advance discussion among stakeholders about systemic changes which can improve USE at the state and national levels including articulation of challenges; identification of leverage points; and identification of the appropriate roles for federal, state, local, private, and non-profit organizations and institutions.
• develop mechanisms to scale the implementation and dissemination of key findings/recommendations emerging from the portfolio of consensus studies being led by the Board on Science Education (BOSE) and the Board on Higher Education and the Workforce (BHEW) in the area of STEM education.  All activities of the Roundtable will be conducted in accordance with institutional guidelines described in "Roundtables:  Policy and Procedures," and separate GBEC approval will be sought for any workshops under the Roundtable.

Description :   

The workshop will consider the future of undergraduate STEM education in light of the rapidly changing social and economic environment. Participants will leave with new ideas for thinking broadly and systemically about improving student learning in undergraduate STEM education. They will network and strategize together about how we educate the increasingly diverse student population and consider the impact of the surrounding system on efforts to improve learning.
