UNH Disciplinary-Based Education Research (DBER) in STEM

A new seminar series for AY 2021-2022

Parsons N104 (Iddles Wing lecture room), 1:10-2:00 pm

Your colleagues in CEPS and COLSA have been conducting NSF-funded research on teaching and learning within their home disciplines. This research informs us about our students and their learning, pointing the way to improved instructional environments.  We invite faculty and staff colleagues and interested graduate students to join us to explore and discuss this research.

The seminar series is sponsored by CEPS, COLSA, and CRISTaL (Collaborative for Research at the Interface of STEM Teaching and Learning).
