It’s a tough time for STEM disciplines. Student enrollment and retention are down with many learners delaying their studies. Half the students who pursue a STEM degree fail to graduate within 6 years of starting university1. And, due to the pandemic, nearly 10 percent of STEM undergrads have decided to delay their graduation2.
Introductory STEM courses are critical for student retention and success. At this event, you will hear from innovative STEM professors who are using technology to keep their students engaged, enrolled and on track to graduate. Plus, you’ll get practical strategies on how to best support your faculty and future-proof your school, no matter what Fall 2021 brings.
