FLAMEnet 2021 Workshop
With support from the National Science Foundation (RCN UBE 1919953), we hosted our 4th Annual FLAMEnet Workshop via Zoom and Gather.town from Wednesday, May 12th through Friday, May 14th, 2021.
Meeting Theme: Transforming Cultures and Affirming Resilience in STEM - Our focus is on transforming the culture within STEM classrooms to better support the resilience of all students with specific attention to students who have been historically excluded due to race, ethnicity, gender, and other factors. The focus of this year’s meeting is strengths-based. We want to emphasize positive productive actions that instructors can take to recognize the innate resilience of all students and help students to draw upon their skills and backgrounds to succeed.
