2022 Michigan State Week of SEISMIC

May 16-19, 2022; East Lansing, MI

Overview


The MSU Week of SEISMIC is an opportunity to join both members of the local campus community and other interested individuals who are curious about SEISMIC-related topics. During this week (5/16-5/19), we will be hosting STEM education presentations, project work days, and discussions on student learning.

 

If individuals who plan to attend the STEM Ed Presentations and Social want to share their work, they have the opportunity to present a “lightning introduction”. These are one-slide, 2-minute maximum presentations that will hopefully allow attendees to identify people they are interested in meeting during the social time.

 

Those interested in attending and/or performing a lightning introduction must register by clicking the button and filling out the corresponding survey.

 

Please reach out to Dr. Ryan Sweeder at sweeder@msu.edu if you have any questions.

Overview

This session will seek to bring together MSU STEM Education Researchers, institutional data analysts, and policy makers. Through presentations and short workshop sessions, we will explore questions at the interface of research and policies and try to address questions such as “how can we develop structures that enhance the role of research results in policy creation?”, “how can we create better communication between researchers and administrative policy makers at different levels?”, or “how can institutional data be better leveraged to support STEM Education Research?”
