STEM Education Research Journal Club (CEILS)

164 Hershey Hall

CEILS members explore relevant education literature in more depth and develop  greater understanding of assessment techniques and data analysis. Presenters will select a paper and lead a discussion about how education researchers have documented the relationship between effective teaching practices and their impact on student learning, knowledge retention, and persistence in STEM majors.
 
Faculty, graduate students, and post-docs are welcome to participate!
 
Join us for the first journal club, led by Life Sciences Core Curriculum Chair and MCDB Professor Frank Laski, presenting the following paper:
 
·         Freeman S, Eddy SL, McDonough M, Smith MK, Okoroafor N, Jordt H, and Wenderoth MP (2014) Active Learning Increases Student Performance in Science, Engineering, and Mathematics. PNAS 111(23): 8410-8415.

Please RSVP (media@ceils.ucla.edu) to receive an electronic copy (PDF) of the paper.
