AERA-ICPSR-NSF PEERS Data Hub to Hold Workshop on Research in Urban STEM Education, September 22—Register Now

August 2021

The AERA-ICPSR-NSF PEERS Data Hub will hold a no-fee workshop, “Maryland Collaborative for Research in Urban STEM Education (MD-CRUSE),” on September 22, 1:00–4:00 p.m. ET. The workshop will broadcast live on Zoom. ASL interpretation and captioning will be provided. Attendees can register here.

Prof. Roni Ellington (Morgan State University​) and Prof. Vanessa Dodo Seriki (Morgan State University) will teach the workshop, which will examine the landscape of K-12 urban STEM education and questions that emerge in urban STEM education contexts. The instructors will explore what urban STEM education is, as well as the unique challenges and opportunities available for students who learn STEM in K-12 urban schools.

Outcomes for students in the STEM education pipeline continue to be a national concern. This interactive workshop will allow education researchers to deepen their awareness of urban STEM education and cutting-edge approaches to understanding issues unique to the teaching and learning of STEM in urban contexts.

The instructors will also delve into some of the theoretical and methodological perspectives and quantitative and qualitative methods that can inform urban STEM education research. They will discuss how these perspectives and methods can be used to extend our knowledge of K-12 urban STEM education both locally and nationally.

This PEERS workshop is the seventh webinar in the 11-part PEERS Research Methods Series. Workshop recordings and related workshop materials are accessible on the PEERS website. The PEERS Hub is offering this series in collaboration with the Institutes in Research Methods (IRM), also funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through its Building Capacity in STEM Education Research (BCSER) program.

The PEERS Data Hub is a joint effort of AERA and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), which is NSF funded (Awards ECR 1937612 [AERA] and ECR 1937509 [ICPSR]). It provides collaborative space for STEM education research communities to build and advance knowledge by sharing innovative ideas, methods, and tools.
