Experiment Centric Pedagogy in the Classroom/ Remote Learning Platforms in STEM

Experiment Centric Pedagogy in the Classroom/ Remote Learning Platforms in STEM Winter 2021 Virtual Workshop" Hosted by Morgan State University 

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 can be effectively engaged in remote setting/synchronously online platforms. The purpose of the virtual workshop is to teach/train STEM faculty on how to implement experiment centric pedagogy in the classroom in-order to effectively engage students in synchronously online platforms.  Additionally, active learning pedagogy plays a critical role in improving student learning in STEM. Consequently, in the workshop,  classroom observation protocols that can be utilized to measure the effectiveness of teaching practices at department-wide and institution wide scales will be presented. 

The speaker is a national expert in hands-on- learning in STEM education: Dr. Kenneth Connor, Emeritus Professor from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute the originator of Experimental Centric Pedagogy

Topics will include:

    • Introduction to Experimental Centric Pedagogy (ECP)
    • How to Introduce ECP into Teaching in  synchronously online platforms
    • Demonstrations of ECP in the Classroom in Six STEM disciplines
    • Classroom Observation in STEM

The free  workshop will be held on January 19. Participants will be able to interact with the speaker during live sessions. All sessions will be recorded. Registered attendees will get access to all  recordings. See the attached flyer and the bios. Register today or contact Dr. Oludare Owolabi for any questions at Oludare.Owolabi@Morgan.Edu.
