    Integrated STEM Education Conference 2011 (ISEC 2011)

    Our goals for ISEC 2011 are to have thought-provoking discussions on how the "silos" separating instruction in and, ultimately, comprehension among STEM fields can be removed and, subsequently, on the various ways "integrated STEM methods" take shape in K-16 classrooms. To this end, we invite you to submit original papers on best practices in integrated STEM instruction that provide descriptions and assessment of innovative integrated STEM instructional modules. Papers detailing initiatives that use computers to support programmatic initiatives are especially welcome. Details at: http://www.tcnj.edu/~sdonohue/ISEC_2011_cfp.pdf
