Designing NGSS aligned, PBL curriculum to support students’ understanding, engagement and socio-emotional learning. The vision set forth by the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the subsequent Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) that builds from it calls for teaching geared towards helping students make sense of the world around them. Project-based learning, with its focus on making sense of meaningful questions and complex phenomena through students investigations, aligns with NGSS Performance Expectation.
Traditionally distinct scientific disciplines are merging to create new opportunities. Share the excitement and challenge through seminars and discussions with nationally recongnized pioneers in Science at the Edge.

CREATE for STEM Institute is very excited to announce Dr. Christopher Hoadley, New York University, as the keynote speaker for its 2019 Mini Conference to be held on May 6, 2019 at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center (Big Ten A Room).
Title: (How much) Can we reasonably expect research to improve teaching and learning?
Abstract: Can research tell us ‘what works’ in education? The basic premises of natural science research may not align well with the phenomena of schooling, in that generalizability, replicability, and treatment control may not make sense. Interpretivistic qualitative research generally has a distant relationship to interventionism. In this talk, I describe some of the types of knowledge we can generate that can improve teaching and learning, including design-based research and design-based implementation research, and try to compare this to what society expects of education research.
