Topic: The Me I See: Student Identity as a Foundation for STEM Education

This discussion focuses on research and practices on supporting the continued interest, retention, and academic success of underrepresented, marginalized, and racialized students in postsecondary STEM education. Coming from a Critical-Identity-Cultural-Ecology perspective, we will discuss the various barriers these students face in postsecondary STEM education. Paradigms and pedagogical practices designed to integrate students’ identities and experiences within their STEM learning will be discussed.
