Faculty Colloquium: Stas and Stewart

Please join us on Friday, March 11, from 12:40–1:40 pm in the Hatfield Room for this week’s Faculty Colloquium. The Colloquium will be presented by Stasinos Stavrianeas, Professor of Exercise Science, and Mark Stewart, Professor of Psychology.

The title of the talk is: iScience 3.0: An Integrated Science Framework for Engaging Students and Enriching Communities.

Their abstract:

Scientists, public policymakers, business leaders, and educators agree there is need for newer, more integrative approaches to science education, research, and community engagement. Join us this Friday as we discuss how an intentionally integrative approach to curricular development, scholarship, and science outreach at Willamette can positively impact students, faculty, and the broader public in meaningful and lasting ways. Insights will be drawn from our 2-year project with the National Science Foundation (NSF), our 3-year collaboration with Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL), and our current work supported by the W.M. Keck Foundation. We will discuss our integrated science framework, iScience, a challenge to conventional thinking on how best to prepare students to address tomorrow’s scientific problems.
