The Clemson University Center for Workforce Development (CUCWD) presented “Digitally Supported Pathways MOVING Students into STEM Fields” at the 2013 STEMtech conference October 27–30 in Atlanta, GA. The STEMtech conference is an international conference focused on increasing student access, success, and completion in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Over 400 sessions emphasize improving STEM education, better aligning educational systems, addressing local workforce needs, and exploring technology’s role in teaching and learning processes.
The conference consisted of college and university faculty members, P-12 teachers, administrators, government officials, and community and business representatives involved in STEM education and information technology sharing their research, best practices, and ideas with their colleagues from around the world.
The presentation included information on the CUCWD’s approach to digital learning support and engagement through state-of-the-art learning systems, a participant discussion on strengthening STEM transitions through P-20 partnerships, and exploration of pathways and stackable credentials (giving students multiple, employable exit opportunities) at Clemson University as well as participant institutions.
