Integrated STEM Education Affiliated Programs
The Colorado Learning Assistant Program uses the transformation of large-enrollment science courses as a mechanism for recruiting and preparing talented science majors for careers in teaching, to engage science faculty in the recruitment and preparation of future teachers, to improve the quality of science education for all undergraduates, and to transform departmental cultures to value research-based teaching for ourselves and for our students.
Discipline Based Education Research is a weekly working seminar where faculty engaged in discipline-based education research can present their work, share their ideas, and coordinate with each other. DBER takes place every Wednesday in Porter B121 at 3:00pm. For more up to date topics, please visit our events page.
Science Education Initiative is a university- supported, 5-year, $5million project to improve how we teach science to all undergraduate students.
The Physics Education Research Group at Colorado is one of the newest and largest research programs in physics education research in the nation.
The Center for Integrated Teaching and Learning promotes the development of a national faculty in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse student audiences as part of their professional careers.
The Colorado Diversity Initiative in science, math and engineering is the overseer for two major grants that support diversity initiatives. Both the National Science Foundation Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professorate (AGEP) and the National Institutes of Health Initiative for Minority Student Development (IMSD) grant award assistantships to incoming underrepresented graduate students, offer professional development opportunities, and support undergraduate research efforts.
