The provost’s office, School of Education, mathematics department, and Shiley School of Engineering invite faculty to attend a free conference on campus, the Texas Instruments Leadership Summit: College and Career Readiness in STEM Education, on Friday, May 29, from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in the Bauccio Commons boardroom. While the summit is oriented towards pre-college, faculty members can easily transfer information to the college level, and may be able to better understand the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) preparation that incoming students bring with them.
Keynote speaker will be Chris Dede (pictured), Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education. Breakfast and lunch will be provided during this half day summit and there is an outstanding speaker line up with both national and local perspectives. Space is limited so please register soon if you plan to attend.
