Welcome and Introductions

Learn and Listen
Participants will listen to experts in a webinar-style presentation

Room 1: Trauma-Informed Instruction
Dr. Julie McDaniel

This session explores the impact of stress on ourselves and our practice. While we continue to navigate this extraordinary time as educators, we have learned much about how to mediate and mitigate the impact of this stress. This session aims to begin a much need conversation of the potential of trauma-informed instruction.

Room 2: Designing Assessments with Multiple Representations
Dr. Stacey Lowery-Bretz

Learning in STEM courses requires students to become fluent in the symbolic language of the particular discipline. Developing expertise, however, requires that students move beyond manipulating symbols to creating explanations using particulate models of matter for observations in the laboratory. Failure to accurately interpret and connect these multiple representations of matter creates challenges for students when learning. Our research group designs measurement tools to advance our understanding of how students understand and interpret representations for a variety of core concepts. Findings regarding students’ reasoning with multiple representations and the implications for assessment will be presented using examples from multiple chemistry courses.
