The Puerto Rico-Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (PR-LSAMP) invites you to participate in the 19th Best Practices Conference on Teaching and Learning (BPC): Practical Approaches in STEM Education and Research
Rationale and main focus of the 19th BPC:
Participants in the previous BPC voiced interest in addressing practical challenges in STEM education related to student misconceptions, student engagement, and producing scholarly works using data collected in courses and projects. This interest, and the global call for evidence-based practices in both STEM education and student interventions, led our PR-LSAMP team to organize the 19th BPC on practical approaches related to misconceptions, multiculturalism, and the production of scholarly works. Furthermore, there will be space for faculty to showcase their research and data on STEM education and to begin transforming existing data and ideas into scholarly works in STEM education and research.
Professional development and networking:
Participants will have the opportunity to share ideas, discuss concepts, and explore potential teaching and research directions during this BPC. For context, all speakers are fully bilingual, Spanish and English, and have educational and research experiences in Puerto Rico. BPC Participants may include faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, teachers, and informal educators. PR-LSAMP will provide a Certificate of Participation to each participant. This Certificate can be used for ethics and professional development hours.
