MOOCs in STEM: Exploring New Educational Technologies > June 5-6 2014 > San Jose University

NSF-funded conference on STEM education

Conference Dates: June 5-6, 2014
Conference Location: San Jose, CA

San José State University’s (SJSU) College of Engineering is holding a NSF-funded conference on learning and discussing the use of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and other intensive technologies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

The Future of MOOCs and Turbocharged Technologies in STEM Education conference will be an opportunity for experts around the world to gather, share their ideas, and to have a discussion on how MOOCs and other technologies should be used to further the education within the STEM fields. This conference will be an opportunity for SJSU and other nationwide faculty to congregate, learn and discuss effective strategies for credit bearing courses.
The conference will also feature guest keynote speakers Yvonna Belanger of the Gates Foundation and Chris Dede of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, as well speakers and presentations from the professional and academic sides of MOOCs.

The overall goal of the conference is to discuss the future of MOOCS and other disruptive educational technologies in STEM higher education. Our secondary goals are to understand the role of MOOCs in modern academia in STEM fields, how to best introduce them into a university setting, and how they may supplement traditional and flipped STEM classrooms. It is supported by the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the IEEE Education Society.
