The Center for STEM Learning at the University of Colorado Boulder invites you to the 11th Annual Symposium on STEM Education!
Date: Monday, 9/23/19
Time: 3:00 - 6:00 PM
Location: UMC Ballroom
This event is a community celebration of CU Boulder’s internationally recognized STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education initiatives.
This year’s event will feature a presentation on the soon-to-be published volume, Talking About Leaving Revisited: Persistence, Reloaction and Loss in Undergraduate STEM Education (Springer, December 2019).
As in years past, we will also feature a CU STEM Education Showcase for CU Boulder faculty, instructors, and students, as well as community members and K-12 teachers to present posters on their research and course transformation efforts.
Please join us! Come learn about and help shape how our campus is redefining learning and discovery in a global context, and setting new standards in education, research, scholarship, and creative work to transform STEM education.

Talking About Leaving Revisited: Persistence, Relocation, and Loss in Undergraduate STEM Education
Talking About Leaving Revisited: Persistence, Relocation, and Loss in Undergraduate STEM Education discusses findings from a five-year study that explored the extent, nature, and contributory causes of field-switching both from and among “STEM” majors, and what enables persistence to graduation. The book reflects on what has and has not changed since publication of the original study (Talking about Leaving: Why Undergraduates Leave the Sciences, Seymore & Hewitt, 1997) and affords the most comprehensive explanatory account to date of persistence, relocation and loss in undergraduate sciences.
