This group is to document the Science Learning+ event that took place at the National Science Foundation (NSF) on May 23rd, 2014 from 12:30 to 5:30 PM ET. The notes are available to anyone who is interested in accessing them. Please visit the group forum for discussion notes and links to relevant resources. More information about Science Learning+ can be found in the NSF Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) solicitation.
As part of our work to support and advance the efforts of science researchers and administrators of education and outreach, CAISE has put together this group to help us curate content for a new InformalScience.org webpage that will highlight exemplary Broader Impacts + Informal Science Education resources for scientists, STEM-based professionals, and university/lab administrators of education and outreach. We will use this group to facilitate sharing and discussion surrounding materials throughout the curation group process.
The purpose of this group is to continue the discussion of the informal science group from the "STEM is Everywhere" meeting that took place at the Beckman Center in Irvine, CA from February 9 - 11, 2014. The discussion will focus on "changing the vision of science learning" that was presented by Margaret Honey in the group's report-out. Please see the Next Steps Summary and the meeting notes in the Group Documents list for a summary of what was discussed. Please note that this is a closed group; you must have been present at the original meeting to join.
