Evidence-Based STEM Education: Teaching and Student Success
Ohio Project Kaleidoscope (OH-PKAL) is pleased to announce registration for our 3nd annual conference, Evidence-Based STEM Education: Teaching and Student Success, held on Saturday May 20, 2017 at the University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio.

The Conference Committee has compiled a vibrant program promoting evidence-based practices across four important threads of STEM education for this one day conference.
- Teaching STEM Service Courses to Non-majors
- Integration of Effective Mathematics Teaching across the STEM Curriculum
- Promoting Effective Learning Across Teaching Environments (e.g., lecture, lab, field, community, online)
- Increasing Retention and Graduation Rates of Underprepared STEM Students
The conference begins with on-site registration at 8:00 AM on Saturday May 20, 2017 followed by the opening welcome at 8:30 AM and keynote address by Dr. Daniel Brahier from Bowling Green State University.
