STEP Central Webinar: Faculty Development for STEM Student Success: Strategies for Generating a Campus Culture of Best Practice

Abstract: A key component of STEM student success lies with the faculty, especially with those teaching courses early in the STEM curriculum.  At the same time, issues of student success and persistence are often framed as institutional issues and, as a result, may not engage faculty at the individual or departmental level.  How can we  both impact faculty classroom pedagogy and elevate the dialogue within STEM departments and colleges so that faculty feel ownership of student success?  This webinar will engage participants in a series of questions designed to foster reflection about how progress toward these goals might be achieved on your campus.  Examples of how these questions have been answered at Boise State and brief descriptions of the strategies we’ve been using to achieve these goals will be shared.  Participants have the opportunity to engage in dialogue about approaches and strategies they are using or considering for use on their campuses.
