CIRCLE Conference 2014

Improving the Knowledge and Practice
of Undergraduate STEM Education



This national conference bridges the gap between learning theory and STEM education by featuring cutting-edge research on innovations in higher education in a variety of STEM fields – biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, and psychology – and pertinent research from cognitive and educational psychology.

Integrating scholarly research on cognitive psychology and STEM education, this conference will produce a synthesis of the current state of knowledge on the science of education, identify outstanding remaining issues, and provide fruitful directions for continuing development of an evidence-based framework for STEM education.
