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.
The Educators Hall of Fame recognizes and highlights the service of those educators to whom East Carolina alumni and friends are most grateful. This permanent recognition is displayed prominently in the Speight Building.
Reception immediately following induction in Speight 203 and viewing of the Educators Hall of Fame in Speight Building.
The College of Education Diversity Committee invites you to the first annual Profiles in Diversity Panel. In a conversational format, the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 COE Profiles in Diversity Honorees will share their work and insights on cultural diversity and equity.
There will be extensive time for questions and discussion. The Panel is a chance for the college community to engage in critical dialogue on diversity and gain new insights on how to realize equity in our schools and communities.
