SENCER Summer Institute 2008
August 8-11 at Santa Clara University
SENCER (Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities) is a National Science Foundation-supported faculty development and science education reform project that has been called "the most important educational reform initiative in general and higher education." SENCER improves science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education by focusing on real world problems and, by so doing, extends the impact of this learning across the curriculum to the broader community and society. The SENCER Summer Institute (SSI) is an annual, intensive, residential, team-based learning opportunity for educators, academic leaders, and students. The SSI features a rich mix of plenaries, workshops, and concurrent sessions that focus on not only what students should learn, but how that learning might be accomplished. Participation is by invitation only, and all interested in attending must submit an application by March 3, 2008 for consideration. More information about SSI 2008 and applications for team and individual participation are available by clicking here.
