Lisa Lewis Selected to Participate in NSF-Sponsored Workshop

October 2020

In a competitive review of applications, Lisa Lewis (Chemistry) was selected to participate in a National Science Foundation-sponsored workshop: "The Future Substance of STEM Education." Details are found in the embedded link but in short, this workshop is bringing a liberal arts approach to science education. Participants in this virtual event will create modules, courses and/or programs that utilize a knowledge framework that addresses (1) what students need to know (foundational knowledge) but also (2) how to act on that knowledge (meta knowledge), and (3) the values we bring to our knowledge and action (humanistic knowledge). The workshop will conclude with a focus on implementation strategies and recommendations for the science larger community.
