SENCER to host "STEAMed to Streams"

The Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities (SENCER) group at Truman, along with the Academic Professional Development Center (APDC), will host a “STEAMed to Streams” event at 7 p.m. April 21 in the Student Union Building Georgian Room C.

This event aims to provide a platform of Truman faculty to initiate discussions about enhancing civic engagement in their current classroom practices. At Truman, faculty in the STEAM fields, or science, technology, English, art and mathematics, are initiating civic engagement strategies in their courses. "STEAMed to Streams" is an opportunity to identify current projects and the potential for collaboration to allow civic engagement to “flow” across campus.
The keynote speaker, Robert Seiser, the co-director for the SCI Midwest and associate professor at Roosevelt University in Chicago, Ill., will discuss the importance of SENCER-based learning in higher education. Following the keynote, there will be informal round table discussions to exchange ideas and share civic engagement strategies with faculty members from various disciplines including biology, health science, English, physics, exercise science and mathematics. Faculty from all disciplines and majors are invited to attend to discuss current practices and meet other interested faculty with similar or collaborative pursuits. Light appetizers and mocktails will be served. RSVP for the event here by April 19.
