Введение

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education programs involve collaborations with Tufts departments of Child Study and Human Development, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics & Astronomy, Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering, as well as the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach.

About the Program

The STEM Education program seeks candidates with backgrounds in STEM disciplines, the Learning Sciences, and related areas. Everything we do in our programs is informed by these core values:

  • To respect, uncover, and build upon all students' natural curiosity and productive intellectual resources for learning and inventing.
  • To engage learners in scientific, mathematical, and engineering-based thinking––for instance, by asking questions, building arguments, thinking systematically, and designing solutions to meaningful problems.

Students in the program:

  • Work closely with program faculty on a variety of research and outreach projects.
  • Complete coursework that reflects learning sciences perspectives on disciplinary knowledge and practices; cultural, historical, and philosophical influences on educational thought and practices; and design and instruction.
  • Complete independent projects.

Faculty projects reflect a range of interests, including:

  • The beginnings of STEM thinking in learners' knowledge and abilities.
  • How students progress toward disciplinary practices and understandings.
  • Teachers' noticing, attending and responding to student thinking.
  • Diversity and access in K-16 STEM education.
  • The design and study of technologies to support thinking, learning, and inquiry.
