Jan 24, 2017: Inaugural Taft STEM Education Lecture at A.J. Fletcher Recital Hall

East Carolina University’s College of Education will host the inaugural Taft STEM Education Lecture on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 6 p.m. in the A.J. Fletcher Recital Hall.

The speaker will be Dr. James Shymansky, the E. Desmond Lee Endowed Professor in Science Education at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

The event is free and open to the public.

The College of Education started the lecture series to ignite new ideas in teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics or STEM. The series will bring international knowledge and discovery from well-known education scholars to eastern North Carolina. The lectures also will provide opportunities to ECU students, faculty and K-12 school staff to meet and collaborate with scholars while increasing the visibility of ECU’s commitment to STEM education.

Shymansky’s research has focused on factors influencing student performance and how professional development activities for teachers translate into enhanced student attitudes and achievement. He is working on a set of online student materials that focus on Next Generation Science Standards, a program consisting of web-based, dual language interactive science modules for elementary and middle school children that can be accessed in English, Spanish, Mandarin and Arabic.
