This past Saturday (Jan. 31), the 8th annual Collaboration for Education Research Forum was held in the Jordan Hall of Science.

This year’s forum focused on understanding, planning, and implementing best practices in STEM teaching and learning. Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, and research professionals came together with representatives from industry to participate in collaborative opportunities in teaching and learning.

The conference consisted of small group discussions and a collaboration bazaar which allowed attendees to connect with other professionals.

The forum kicked off with an introduction to the concepts and literature behind best practices in teaching and learning and attendees gathered in smaller groups to collaborate and discuss the concepts. The group  was also introduced some of the newer local opportunities in the STEM field, such as ND-LEEF, the Notre Dame linked experimental ecosystem facility at St. Patrick's County Park, and the Michiana Science and Technology Center (MSTCi), an education-based organization in the Michiana region designed to nurture interest in STEM learning.
