Improving practice in undergraduate science education

Of all the STEM education symposia titles scheduled for the 2013 AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston, the one title bearing the words “undergraduate” and “research,” co-organized by Jay Labov of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, Susan Singer, Professor of Biology and Cognitive Science at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, and Martin Storksdieck of the National Research Council, seeks to take stock of recent history—notable studies, policy reports, and disciplinary conferences—to inform future actions.
