STEM Education

Drexel biology students in the lab

STEM research in the biology department makes use of cross-campus and national collaborations. We address questions focused on promoting the use of evidence-based pedagogical approaches in STEM classrooms; factors that affect student retention in STEM disciplines; approaches to promote incorporation of effective authentic STEM learning environments; and frameworks to promote institutional change surrounding STEM teaching and learning.
