Science Teaching Fellows Colloquium: Science Education in the 21st Century

Science Teaching Fellows Colloquium May 6 in QNC 1501

The traditional university science curriculum was designed to train specialists in specific disciplines. However, in universities all over the world, science students are going into increasingly diverse careers and the current model does not fit their needs. Advances in technology also make certain modes of learning obsolete.
