Proposals Due Thursday, March 24, 2016

The Association of American Colleges and Universities and Project Kaleidoscope are pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for the 2016 Conference on Transforming Undergraduate STEM Education.

AAC&U and Project Kaleidoscope invite you to join with colleagues to share and examine evidence-based models, practices, and strategies to provide high-quality undergraduate STEM teaching and learning and increase the number of students majoring, completing baccalaureate degrees, and pursuing careers in STEM fields. This year’s conference will deepen our understanding of “what works” in STEM higher education reform and provide attendees with the opportunity to rethink curricular designs and teaching approaches in ways that will maximize learning.

Proposals that showcase evidence-based practices related to any of the themes below, and that are poised for immediate uptake and adaptation in a wide range of institution types, including community colleges and minority serving institutions, are strongly encouraged.

The specific themes to be addressed with this Call for Proposals are:

  • Undergraduate STEM Teaching and Learning: Contexts, Content, and Relevancy
  • Supporting, Rewarding, and Building Capacity of STEM Faculty
  • Inclusive Excellence/Broadening Participation in STEM Higher Education
  • Assessment and Evidence for High-Quality Undergraduate STEM Learning
  • Understanding Effective Strategies for Transforming Institutional Cultures for Undergraduate STEM reform
