Discipline-Based Education Research meetings bring a multi-disciplinary group of faculty together every 2-3 weeks for a seminar series on undergraduate STEM education reform and research. The goal of the meetings is to bring interested faculty together into a forum for course/program transformation and education research.
Currently around 12-18 faculty attend each meeting, representing three colleges (Arts & Sciences, Education, Engineering and Computing) and six departments (biology, chemistry, computing, earth & environment, mathematics, physics). Past topics have included curricula (Modeling, ISLE, etc.), techniques such as aligning assessment with course goals, education frameworks (LA model, PLTL, etc.), and the research that evidences the impact of these reforms.
