Educational research has repeatedly shown that compared to traditional teacher-centered instruction, certain learner-centered methods lead to improved learning outcomes, greater development of critical high-level skills, and increased retention in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Teaching and Learning STEM presents a trove of practical research-based strategies for designing and teaching STEM courses at the university, community college, and high school levels. The book draws on the authors' extensive backgrounds and decades of experience in STEM education and faculty development. The book provides clear and coherent strategies to effectively implement learner-centered methods and deal with problems (including student resistance) that might occur in the implementation. The book aims to help instructors: 1) Plan and conduct class sessions in which students are actively engaged, no matter how large the class; 2) Make good use of technology in face-to-face, online, hybrid courses, and flipped classrooms; 3) Assess how well students are acquiring the knowledge, skills, and conceptual understanding the course is designed to teach, 4) Help students develop expert problem-solving skills and skills in communication, creative thinking, critical thinking, high-performance teamwork, and self-directed learning; and 5) Meet the learning needs of STEM students with a broad diversity of attributes and backgrounds.
