What Is EDU-STEM?

Equity and Diversity in Undergraduate STEM

The EDU-STEM network coordinates teaching and research through evidence-based classroom experiences across the biology curriculum. The four objectives are:

  • Reveal differences, if they exist, in the cultural climate for women and minorities in STEM disciplines (initially focusing on biology) as a function of geography, institution type, and cultural profile of the participating departments;
  • Increase the number of faculty in the United States that are familiar with barriers to inclusion in STEM, and can apply evidence-based techniques for countering known barriers;
  • Develop a community of faculty that can serve as leaders—at their home institutions and nationally—in inclusive teaching and assessment;
  • Identify cultural factors associated with a shift towards evidence-based teaching, especially pertaining to inclusive teaching.

These activities will be integrated throughout thousands of students’ first and second years of higher education, and all of them involve evidence- based techniques and experiences.

An Interview With Carrie Hall

From boot camps to bugs to bioacoustics, Carrie Hall has a wide range of experience. Carrie works at the crossroads of environmental health and animal behavior, often drawing on her other work as a behavioral ecologist. Her research focuses on insect systems, covering a wide range of topics including bioacoustics, conservation, and the impact of environmental changes on behavior. Her lab, however, serves a dual purpose - she studies teaching and learning, largely because of her previous experiences. See the full interview.
