Purdue University to Participate in The 2022 STEM for All Video Showcase: Access, Inclusion, and Equity
West Lafayette, IN, May 10, 2022 — Jason Morphew, Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University will be featured in the 2022 STEM for All Video Showcase funded by the National Science Foundation. The event will be held online May 10-17, 2022 at https://stemforall2022.videohall.com.
The presentation, entitled “Improving Problem-Solving Skills of Engineering Undergraduate Students by Infusing Engineering Design in Introductory Physics Labs,” looks at the impact of integrating engineering design into the introductory physics labs for first-year engineering students. This highly innovative curricular reform is driven by a collaboration between the Astronomy and Physics Department and the School of Engineering Education and investigates how engaging first-year engineering students in physics labs that integrate engineering design and scientific inquiry can ground learning, provide opportunity for students to apply theoretical learning to solve authentic problems, and develop metacognitive skills. The project was funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Now in its eighth year, the annual showcase will feature over 250 innovative projects aimed at improving Science, Technology, Math, Engineering and CS education, which have been funded by the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies. During the 8-day event, researchers, practitioners, policy makers and members of the public are invited to view the short videos, discuss them with the presenters online, and vote for their favorites.
The theme for this year’s event is “Access, Inclusion, and Equity.” Video presentations address broadening participation; STEM learning in formal, informal, community and home settings; design and implementation of STEM and CS programs; research informing STEM and CS teaching and learning; and measuring impact of innovative programs. Collectively, the presentations cover a broad range of topics including science, mathematics, computer science, engineering, cyberlearning, citizen science, maker spaces, broadening participation, research experiences, mentoring, professional development, NGSS and the Common Core.
The STEM for All Video Showcase is hosted by TERC, in partnership with: STEMTLnet, CADRE, CAISE, CIRCLS, STELAR, CS for All Teachers, NARST, NCTM, NSTA, NSF INCLUDES, and QEM. The Showcase is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (#1922641).
