The Academy’s Global STEM Alliance (GSA) has developed and refined an approach to online challenge-based learning, in which students work collaboratively to design solutions to real-world problems with support from STEM professionals who serve as mentors. Challenge-based learning offers many educational benefits, including increased student engagement, skills development, and content mastery. In this event, GSA students and mentors will share their experiences of challenge-based learning, and educators will consider implications for classroom practice.
During this webinar, you will hear from a panel of students, teachers, and mentors on the following topics:
- What are the benefits of challenge-based learning?
- How might challenge-based learning address issues of equity in STEM?
- What are some best practices in challenge-based learning?
- How might educators use challenge-based learning in their classrooms?
