Scott-Parker, B.; Barone-Nugent, E. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2019
Global progress has arisen from scientific advances and we currently live in the age of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); science as a way of increasing the knowledge base, technology as a means of manifesting the science, engineering as a way of building and creating with it, and mathematics to devise the language we use…

Pierszalowski, Sophie; Vue, Rican; Bouwma-Gearhart, Jana – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
Considerable work is still required to eliminate disparities in postsecondary STEM persistence and success across student groups. Engagement in faculty-mentored research has been employed as one strategy to promote personal, professional, and academic gains for undergraduate students, although barriers exist that make it more difficult for some to…

Starks, B. Chad; Matthaeus, William H. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
We comment on several major factors that contribute to the underrepresentation of specific groups (i.e. racial and ethnic minorities) in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational programs, particularly at the advanced graduate levels. Recognition of the structural inequalities that create and reinforce these disparities…

Kezar, Adrianna; Gehrke, Sean – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it as they interact regularly. Higher education leaders are attracted to CoPs because they are a peer-based model of learning with colleagues, which works well for professionals such as faculty. These authors identified…

Phelan, Shelley A.; Harding, Shannon M.; Harper-Leatherman, Amanda S. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
BASE (Broadening Access to Science Education) Camp is a hands-on, two-week residential summer science experience on the Fairfield University campus in Fairfield CT, USA. The annual program targets 24 young women who attend high school in the neighboring city of Bridgeport, CT, the most economically depressed city in CT. The camp, which is free to…

Krehbiel, Dwight; Piper, Jon K. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
In 2000 several STEM faculty at Bethel College in Kansas designed and began offering a one-week intensive residential summer research experience for high school students--the Bethel College Summer Science Institute. The core idea underlying the design was to motivate students through the excitement of discovery. This event has been offered…

Lowder, Loraine; Atiqulla, Mir; Colebeck, Donna; Das, Sandip; Karim, M. A.; Khalid, Adeel; Singh, Rajnish; Utschig, Tristan – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2017
An important purpose of peer observation is to provide formative feedback that will improve classroom teaching and learning. Peer observation in higher education has both quality and developmental objectives. Kennesaw State University, formerly Southern Polytechnic State University, offers a voluntary "Teaching Partners Program" open to…

Patrick, Lorelei E.; Howell, Leigh Anne; Wischusen, William – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2016
There have been numerous calls recently to increase the use of active learning in university science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) classrooms to more actively engage students and enhance student learning. However, few studies have investigated faculty and student perceptions regarding the effectiveness of active learning or the…

Lehman, James D.; Kim, WooRi; Harris, Constance – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2014
The new standards for K-12 science education in the United States call for science teachers to integrate engineering concepts and practices within their science teaching in order to improve student learning. To accomplish this, teachers need appropriate instructional materials as well as the knowledge and skills to effectively use them. This mixed…

Ejiwale, James A. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2014
Collaboration plays a major role in interdisciplinary activities among Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) disciplines or fields. It also affects the relationships among cluster members on the management team. Although effective collaboration does not guarantee success among STEM disciplines, its absence usually assures…

Kapila, Vikram; Iskander, Magued – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2014
A student's first introduction to engineering and technology is typically through high school science labs. Unfortunately, in many high schools, science labs often make use of antiquated tools that fail to deliver exciting lab content. As a result, many students are turned off by science, fail to excel on standardized science exams, and do not…

Christe, Barbara – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2013
Despite an alarm raised by Seymour and Hewitt (1997) describing science, engineering and mathematics programs as chilly and unwelcoming, students continue to report significant feelings of hostility and a lack of caring when characterizing the professor-student relationship. The negative feelings correlate with poor course performance, lower grade…
