CRMSE Provides Stage for Global Sharing of Ideas

The Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education (CRMSE), a joint College of Science and College of Education Center, has hosted numerous research presentations this past Fall semester, hosted by both graduate students as well as distinguished faculty from other schools.

The Center features an active collaboration of departments from both the College of Sciences and College of Education that work together to advance science and math education. Funded by the National Science Foundation, there is a wide variety of speaker opportunities provided by CRMSE for the University and local community.

Among these opportunities are Brown Bags – informal discussions offered by graduate students – that function as a stage to share research ideas and engaging in rich discussion. However, CRMSE also features formal research presentations from university professors not just from SDSU, but all over the world.

This past Fall, speakers from locations such as China and Vancouver were able to present their research to students and faculty within the College. The Joint-Doctoral Program in Mathematics and Science Education was also able to provide speakers from the University of North Carolina as well as Stanford University.

This past November, Professor Mark Ellis of Cal State Fullerton and San Diego State’s Dr. Matt Anderson presented for the CRMSE speaker series. Ellis, who presented for CRMSE’s STEM Education, Economics and Equity (SEEE) forum, discussed Common Core standards with fellow educators. Anderson, SDSU’s 2014-2015 physicist and Senate Distinguished Professor, presented his learning tool that helps students in online classes increase their comprehension of complex problems.

Looking ahead to the Spring semester, CRMSE will host another SEEE Seminar, among multiple other speakers and presenters. Professor Rochelle Gutiérrez, this year’s Distinguished Lecturer and Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will also be presenting in the Spring.
