"Experiment Centric Pedagogy and Home-based Hands-on Learning in STEM Summer 2020 Virtual Workshop" Hosted by Morgan State University
June 3 and June 4 2020
The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has forced colleges and universities to adopt completely online educational learning environments. There is a growing concern in STEM fields about how students will be able to achieve one of the major learning outcomes without conducting physical hands-on laboratory exercises; an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering/scientific judgment to draw conclusions (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) Student Outcome 6). The purpose of the virtual workshop is to teach/train STEM faculty on how to develop inexpensive home-based hands-on laboratory exercises in their STEM courses. Speakers are national experts in hands-on- learning in STEM education: Dr. Kenneth Connor, Emeritus Professor from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the originator of Experimental Centric Pedagogy; Dr. James Brown, the Grand Father of Online Science; and Dr. Aldo Ferri an expert on Hands-on Learning in Engineering. Topics will include:
· Introduction to Experimental Centric Pedagogy (ECP)
· How to Introduce ECP Into Teaching and Laboratory Exercises
· Home-based hands-on learning in science
· Hands-on learning in mechanical and aerospace engineering using portable devices
The free two-day workshop will be held on June 3 and June 4. Participants will be able to interact with the speakers during live sessions. All sessions will be recorded. Registered attendees will get access to all recordings". See the attached flyer and the bios.
