NIH-Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has funded CREATE for STEM Institute at University of Michigan in collaboration with the School of Public Health at University of Michigan and other partners for this five-year project. The project, called Health in Our Hands, is developing and testing new learning materials that blend formal classroom instruction and informal community-based learning to give both students and community members opportunities to apply ideas about gene-environment interactions, natural selection, and evolution to their lives.
The DBER Journal Club is a reading and discussion group for post-docs and graduate students to learn about and develop this research field together, as well as build collaborations within MSU. The group meets on a monthly basis on topics that cut across disciplines.
The Discipline-Based Educational Research (DBER) Group at CREATE is a gathering of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers who are grounded in their respective STEM disciplines and who have a research interest or focus on investigating and improving education, particularly at the undergraduate level.
This is a special interest group at CREATE for all those who are interested in any aspects of science education and science education research at the kindergarten through secondary level.
