Leaders in the Work of Reform
Over the past decade, pioneers in the work of improving undergraduate STEM have led in integrating research and education, bringing the same passion to their responsibilities for student learning as they do to other professional responsibilities within their scholarly community. These leading agents of change have also shaped the future in regard to incorporating new technologies in the learning environment, as well as in giving attention to how people learn in the design of new curricular approaches. These leaders in reform come from institutions large and small, from all disciplines, all parts of the country.Their work is supported by colleagues-- within and beyond their campus.
