Get Involved with the Center for STEM Learning

Whether you are interested in becoming a high school science teacher or doing research on STEM education, there are many different ways to get involved with the Center for STEM Learning. We're always looking for talented people to join our efforts as faculty, graduate students, or undergraduate Learning Assistants! The following are just a few of the ways to get involved.

Attend DBER: The Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) seminar is a multi-disciplinary weekly series that emphasizes discipline-based STEM education research. It is a forum for faculty, staff, researchers, and students interested in education research and course transformation to share their ideas and get feedback on their work. These seminars bring together faculty and graduate students from roughly 45 different programs and departments across four schools/colleges. The average attendance is more than 20 people. In addition to being intellectually rich, these meetings also serve to create a community among the many STEM education researchers on campus. All are welcome to attend. This semester DBER is held on Tuesdays at 3:00 pm. Visit our DBER page for a current schedule and list of topics.

Apply for funding through the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in STEM Education: $10,000 faculty/staff awards and part-time (25%) graduate research fellowships of up to one academic year are available to support faculty and graduate students engagement in innovative research and student learning and implementation of research-based STEM education programs and initiatives.

Swap Links: send us your logo and details about your program and we'll feature it on our web site and link us from yours. If you don't have a web site yet, we can also provide support by giving you a page on our site.

Collaborate on funding proposals – NSF, NIH, HHMI. CU Faculty have already brought in more than $20 million for STEM education. The more coordination and collaboration there are for funding, the stronger the programs at CU will be.
