DBER | 2017 Fall Speaker Schedule

STEM Education Seminar offered at two sites

During the Fall 2017 semester, the DBER Group's STEM Education Seminar will be simultaneously offered at TWO sites: one on City Campus and one on East Campus.

  • The in-person presentations will be hosted on Thursdays at 2 p.m. in Bessey Hall, room 109, on the City Campus.
  • Upon request, these presentations will be simultaneously virtually available (i.e., via internet connection). If you are interested in attending the virtual session, then you must contact Citlally Jimenez at least a day in advance.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the sites!

This site is updated regularly with materials presenters are willing to share and are available through the Digital Commons.

1 Speakers who did not grant permission to post materials are indicated with the superscript '1' at the end of their names; therefore, if interested in such a talk, consider directly contacting the speaker.

2 Speakers whose materials are in queue for upload to Digital Commons are indicated with the superscript '2' at the end of their names.
