The STREAMS project at BSU: A holistic approach to retaining students in the STEM disciplines

   An NSF-STEP grant has allowed the College of Science and Mathematics at Bridgewater State University to develop and implement interventions to help increase the retention of students in STEM disciplines. This holistic approach includes a Summer Bridge Program for incoming freshmen, a Science and Mathematics Residential Learning Community, Supplemental Learning Assistance attached to all introductory STEM courses, better Transfer Student advising and an overall culture change in the college, which recognizes the value of these interventions.

The Scholar-Teacher as Critical Practitioner

What are the characteristics that make a successful scholar and creative artist? What qualities make an effective teacher? And where do these traits intersect? In this interactive session we will explore these questions in light of what recent research reveals about effective faculty teaching and student learning.
