Massive Study Finds Lectures Still Dominate STEM Education

Massive Study Finds Lectures Still Dominate STEM Education | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
One potential culprit captured by the study: Faculty may lack the training necessary to take advantage of smaller class sizes, open classroom layouts and other strategies meant to reduce the reliance on conventional lecturing. Lectures did occur less often in smaller than larger classes, the study found, and open layouts did correlate with more student-centered learning. But about half of the courses with those advantages still featured more conventional lecturing than interactive or student-centered teaching styles.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

"Enough with the lectures already!'

25 Makerspace (STEM / STEAM) Projects For Kids

25 Makerspace (STEM / STEAM) Projects For Kids | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Makerspace or STEM projects for kids don’t have to be complicated or expensive.  In fact, some of the best projects use recycled or repurposed items like cardboard or soda bottles which means nothing to buy.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Looking to set up a community based makerspace? Enroll in EDUC 660 Teaching for Creativity and Innovation: The Maker Culture  Maker Culture means 21st century hands on learning.  Get a grip on it!

Center on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities

Center on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The Center on Online Learning’s fourth and final webinar for the 2013-14 school year was presented by our very own Dr. Jamie Basham. He presented on “Tech and Apps to Address STEM in Online Learning for Students with Disabilities.” He described how Universal Design for Learning applied to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), can help teachers (and students) become “learning engineers.” He described the UDL instruction planning process and provided some great potential tools to use including iTunesU, iBooks, MyScript Calculator, Videolicious, and many other resources. Jamie left the audience with lots of tools, ideas, and directions to explore to move their STEM instruction forward.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This is a webinar archive on a vital topic. You'll find excellent resources more than just STEM and UDL.  Dig in, you'll be glad you did.

Let’s Give Girls a Chance to Succeed in STEM

Let’s Give Girls a Chance to Succeed in STEM | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
With college-educated women outnumbering college-educated men, why does such inequality plague STEM-based professions? From what I hear in my work as an education technology entrepreneur, an antiquated cultural myth still exists that girls are inherently uncomfortable with computing, math and science.
