SENCER Summer Institute at SUNY Stony Brook in August
Dear STEMists and STEM-allies,
As you may know, Stony Brook University is home to the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement (NCSCE), with Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities (SENCER) as its signature program. The mission of SENCER is to strengthen student learning and interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by connecting course topics to issues of critical local, national, and global importance.
One way of putting the SENCER Ideals into action is through faculty-development efforts. The SENCER Summer Institutes (SSIs) represent the cornerstones of SENCER’s faculty-development and academic-reform program. They feature a rich mix of plenaries, workshops, and other sessions that focus not only on what students should learn, but also how that learning might be accomplished. This year’s institute will take place at Stony Brook University on Aug. 3–6, 2017.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me or Kyle Simmons, SENCER’s Faculty Development Events Manager at the Washington, D.C., Office, at (202) 483-4600 or by email.
