STEM Teaching Group

Main Content

We are a group of faculty, staff, and graduate students from various Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Education disciplines who share a passion for teaching, and collaborate to learn more about STEM teaching and to share best practices with one another.

The STEM teaching group is an informal group of individuals interested in improving teaching in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. We maintain an opt-in mailing list, to which we advertise events going on at Penn State on topics relevant to improving STEM teaching. These events include some of the many seminars / workshops / lectures that are already happening frequently in small venues around the campuses -- advertising them to this one central network ensure that a larger population of people hears about these events, and encourages networking and collaboration between disciplines. We also periodically host our own dedicated seminars, workshops, and discussions, which we advertise to the whole list, bringing together all of the STEM disciplines. 

The STEM group collaborates closely with the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence and the Eberly College of Science Center for Excellence in Science Education (CESE), and both organizations have generously contributed to funding our group.
