Collaboration is Critical. Let’s Talk about How to Cultivate Equitable Science Education Partnerships in New Orleans at #AGU2021
Collaboration. Teamwork. Cooperation. Problem-Solving. These words circulate throughout K-12 and higher education research and teaching circles as essential elements in promoting student learning, growth, and innovation – especially in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. Because collaboration and teamwork are so critical in science education, we want to hear how you have been able to harness the potential of effective multi-institutional collaborations to broaden participation in STEM and to create more equitable educational experiences.
Partner with us by submitting an abstract to "ED013: Cultivating Collaboration: The Practice and Process of Building Equitable and Effective Multi-Institutional STEM Education, Research, and Outreach Teams".
Who should submit to this session and why?
The call to collaborate sounds great and on the surface, sharing resources and expertise seems the logical thing to do when attempting to address a very complex problem. However, those who have engaged in meaningfully collaborative, multi-institutional projects know how challenging it can be to form equitable and truly collaborative partnerships.
Individuals and teams who have designed, developed, implemented, and evaluated multi-institutional STEM education and outreach projects are invited to submit an abstract to this session. Researchers and educators who have insights and examples to share that will help us to address our guiding questions are particularly desired:
* Who should consider initiating a multi-institutional STEM education and outreach collaboration, and what are some important first steps in forming a collaborative team?
* What are some of the challenges and opportunities associated with forming a multi-institutional collaboration?
* What are some best-practices for negotiating equitable collaborations with faculty and students at minority serving institutions?
* What processes are most effective when forming a collaborative STEM team?
Share your thoughts, perspectives, and strategies on these topics in-person or online so that we may cultivate a climate of collaboration in STEM education.
Abstract submission deadline is Wednesday, 4 August 2021 at 23:59 EDT.
Please distribute widely and see you in New Orleans!
