The fall meeting of the MSU STEM Education Alliance will serve as a welcome reception and a networking opportunity for current and new faculty, specialists, staff, post-docs, and graduate students engaging in and supporting undergraduate STEM education. The theme of the meeting is Connecting STEM Education Research and Practice. We invite colleagues from across campus to share their stories about how education research has informed and impacted teaching methods, curricular development, and the culture around teaching and learning in their units. The overall goals of the meeting are to:   

  • Highlight undergraduate STEM education efforts across the university including ways to get involved with the STEM education community; and
  • Facilitate networking among faculty, specialists, researchers, and staff from STEM colleges across campus.
