This will be a working conference to examine the opportunities, challenges and barriers to
developing cross-cutting research questions and paradigms that better reflect current
understandings of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning as
lifelong, life-wide and life-deep and to propose a range of new visions for future research
directions. A major goal is to build bridges across diverse research communities in order to
foster dialogue and synergies, making particular efforts to bridge those historically focused on
specific aspects of STEM learning during early childhood, K-12, higher education and in and
from informal environments. We also will discuss strategies for breaking down silos between
STEM content professionals, and building meaningful connections between research and
practice within and across these diverse learning communities. To achieve this goal,
participants will be selected who broadly represent this diverse community of researchers. We
envision including a mix of both senior investigators and leaders in the field, as well as emerging
researchers. There will be no papers or formal presentations.
PLEASE ATTACH A SHORT CV OR BIOGRAPHY TO TELL US ABOUT YOUR STEM LEARNING
RESEARCH AND YOUR CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES. OF GREATEST IMPORTANCE, INCLUDE
A BRIEF STATEMENT ABOUT HOW YOUR PERSPECTIVES ON RESEARCH WILL CONTRIBUTE TO
A BROADER DISCUSSION OF NEW PARADIGMS AND APPROACHES TO INVESTIGATING 21 ST
CENTURY STEM LEARNING.
