University of Maryland, Baltimore County
Renetta Garrison Tull is an associate vice provost at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and co-principal investigator for NSF programs involving undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty. She develops national models for STEM equity, and her platform includes global diversity strategies for engineering.
At the Forum, I can offer strategic approaches for STEM diversity throughout the pipeline.
At the Forum, I am looking for opportunities to share and exchange research ideas and conceptual frameworks.
University of Washington Bothell
Carrie Tzou is an associate professor in science education at the University of Washington Bothell. She studies and designs technology-supported STEM learning environments that connect science learning with identity, culture, and equity in formal and informal environments.
At the Forum, I can offer what we have learned about identity and culture in science education.
At the Forum, I am looking for new ideas on how to connect equity with engineering learning and the Next Generation Science Standards.
New England Board of Higher Education
Kelli Vallieres, Ph.D., is the director of the Problem Based Learning Center for the New England Board of Higher Education and the president and CEO of Sound Manufacturing and Monster Power Equipment. She earned her degree in Educational Leadership and Adult Learning from the University of Connecticut in 2007.
At the Forum, I can offer problem-based learning (PBL) tools to engage students in critical thinking and problem solving.
At the Forum, I am looking for resources for the PBL Center that will support teacher integration of PBL.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Isabel Vogt is a graduate student in math at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the program coordinator for MIT PRIMES Circle, a math enrichment program for local high school students. PRIMES Circle is part of the larger PRIMES organization, which coordinates high school reading and research in math and computer science.
At the Forum, I can offer experience organizing math enrichment programs for high school students.
At the Forum, I am looking for advice from other STEM organizers and opportunities to grow the program.
Chèche Kennen Center, TERC
Beth Warren co-directs the Chèche Konnen Center at TERC. She investigates learning and teaching as intercultural processes. With Boston Arts Academy faculty, artists, and scientists, she is designing studio learning environments based in an artscience pedagogy and focused on emerging science.
At the Forum, I can offer illustrations of an artscience pedagogy in urban formal and informal settings.
At the Forum, I am looking for discussion of transdisciplinary models of learning with an equity focus.
Outlier Research & Evaluation | CEMSE | University of Chicago
Sarah Wille is a senior researcher at Outlier Research & Evaluation, where she leads Computer Science (CS) education research efforts. She is the principal investigator on two NSF-supported studies that aim to improve K-12 CS education opportunities for students by generating useful and accessible tools and findings for practitioners and researchers.
At the Forum, I can offer an education researcher’s perspective on high school CS education.
At the Forum, I am looking for discussion of factors affecting both STEM and CS education.
