SOTL: Mason’s STEM Accelerator Program: Summer Boot Camp
Note: This talk is part of a single SoTL session that runs from 1-2:30pm in JC Room B and includes a series of "lightning talks" that are ~5 minutes each followed by a roundtable discussion about the projects and SoTL in general. This is a great session for those interested in learning the outcomes of SoTL efforts, those interested in how to start their own SoTL project, and for experienced researchers who are interested in learning about other approaches and methodologies.
BRIEF SESSION DESCRIPTION:
Retaining students within the higher education STEM majors, remains a challenge for institutions across the United States. Mason’s solution to this nationwide concern is to implement a STEM Summer Boot Camp for incoming freshman that focuses on engaging students and modernizing instructional methods.
