The symposium is intended as an engaging and interactive virtual forum to showcase ideas and presentations. While STEM content and teaching practices will be highlighted and illustrated, it is our more profound hope that participants will engage in deeper discussions about whether and in what ways their visions of teaching and learning have shifted as a result of COVID-19 and/or more recently as a result of the recent national unrest.
Participants will have the opportunity to attend four engaging featured-speaker sessions and hear from four mini-keynote speakers with expertise in a variety of areas. Equally important, participants will hear the reflections and perspectives of our most important educational stakeholders—a panel of students. We hope that you will use this symposium to connect, exchange ideas, and learn from this community of STEM educators. More importantly, we hope to leave you inspired and prepared for the upcoming school year—no matter what challenges it may bring.
Mini Keynote Speakers
Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows will facilitate eleven thought-provoking and relevant sessions which will highlight both the challenges and successes of teaching in remote environments and during challenging times. Sessions will provide STEM teaching strategies and resources and will challenge participants to consider new approaches for maintaining learner engagement and success outside of the traditional classroom.
