2010 Agenda

USEFUL LINKS

  1. Preparing doctoral students to teach -- resources from the Center for the Integration of Research on Teaching and Learning.
  2. Innovative curricular materials -- materials highlighted in the K-Gray Engineering Pathway of the National Science Digital Library.
  3. Examples of education research leading to effective instruction
    a. "Evidence of Promising Practices in STEM Education (2008) by the National Research Council
    b. "Then, Now, and in the Next Decade" (1999) by Project Kaleidoscope
  4. 2010 NRC report finds that Computer games and simulations are worthy of future investment and investigation as a way to improve science learning, says a new report from the National Research Council. The study committee found promising evidence that simulations can advance conceptual understanding of science, as well as moderate evidence that they can motivate students for science learning. Research on the effectiveness of games designed for science learning is emerging, but remains inconclusive.
