STEAM + Service Learning: An Initiative to Improve Communities and Increase Opportunities

STEAM is quickly catching on as the “new trend” in Education.  However, what if this teaching approach could be used to increase diversity in STEM fields?  Dr. Quigley is examining just that by connecting STEAM to Service Learning as a way for students to explore their communities.  In this presentation, Dr. Quigley will describe STEAM, the connections to diversity, and how STEAM and Service Learning are a natural fit.

Dr. Cassie Quigley


Dr. Cassie Quigley is an Assistant Professor of Science Education in the Department of Teaching and Learning.  She received her doctorate in Curriculum & Instruction at Indiana University in 2010.  Her research focuses on broadening the conceptions of and participation in science—which is how she became interested in STEAM teaching.  She sees STEAM as a way to connect students to science through a transdisciplinary, problem-solving approach. Along with Dr. Herro, she works with current teachers on expanding their current pedagogical practices to include STEAM approaches. Dr. Quigley also teaches in the MAT Middle Level program which is a one-year masters and initial certification program for middle school teachers. In this program, she teachers science methods, environmental science, and other foundational courses. Additionally, Dr. Quigley is a Faculty Senator, as well as a member of the Ethics and Equity Committee at the National Association for Research in Science Teaching. 

Clemson Collaborations in Service-Learning Webcast

Clemson University Collaborations in Service-Learning is sponsored by the Clemson Service Alliance. The Service Alliance promotes the use of community service and service-learning by Clemson faculty in classes with both undergraduate and graduate students in all major disciplinary areas. The Collaborations radio webcasts are an opportunity to hear from some of our Clemson Service Alliance Faculty Fellows, their students, and their community partners about  service-learning projects around the state of S.C., and to learn about the impact of these service-learning projects on the community and on student learning outcomes.  In 2014-2015, we will be focusing on service –learning classes in five different disciplinary areas:  Planning and Landscape Architecture, English, Languages, Teacher Education, and Nursing. Thank you for participating, and we hope that service-learning practitioners in both K-12 and higher education will find these workshops very helpful in the course development, implementation, and evaluation process.
This program comes to you as a public service of Clemson University. There is no fee, and no registration is required. You may listen to the program and view the supplementary materials using only your computer. You will need to call in if you wish to speak on the live program.
