Upcoming Events

Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 11:45amFormative assessments: Presented by Kati Brazeal


During the Fall 2017 semester, the STEM Education Seminar will meet live and in person on Thursdays at 2:00 PM in Bessey Hall, room 109, on the City Campus.

However, upon request, these presentations will also be simultaneously virtually available (i.e., via internet connection) and hosted on the East Campus.  If you are interested in attending a virtual session, then you must contact Jenny Dauer (jenny.dauer@unl.edu) at least a day in advance.

Both sites will have one or members of the DBER Group organizational team who will facilitate the discussion at each site and communication between attendees at both sites.

We hope that the virtual option on the East Campus will help to make these important, timely, and thought-provoking STEM education presentations and discussions more accessible to faculty, staff, postdocs, students, and other interested individuals.  We look forward to seeing you at one of the sites!
