Discussion Panel - STEM Education across the APRU Network: Shaping Learning Experiences for Students

This session is open to all faculty member of APRU universities.

During this panel, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) faculty from across the APRU network will discuss how innovative STEM education teaching practices can be culturally responsive and adapted to the wide variety of learning environments around the Pacific Rim. Reforming STEM classroom experiences changes the paradigm of the traditional classroom environment. Instead of viewing students as vessels to receive knowledge through expertly delivered lectures, students become active participants in each class session through activities, discussions, and assessments designed to challenge and engage students deeply in their own learning.
