STEM Center Team Presents at National Conference
On March 25-28, members of the STEM Center and Learning Center teams attended the National Alliance of Hispanic Serving Institution Educators conference in Chicago. This conference brought together administrators, faculty and project staff from 2-year and 4-year institutions from around the country that serve a large number of Hispanic students to discuss best practices in the field for promoting Hispanic student academic success.
Dr. Carol Rhodes, Dr. Milena Angelova and Georganne Morin represented the Cañada College STEM Center by presenting a workshop entitled, “A Multi-layered, Data-Driven Evaluation Process for Creating Continuous Program Development Capacity.” In this workshop, the presenters walked the audience through a four-step evaluation process and used the STEM Center’s EPIC tutoring program as a case study for how the STEM Center evaluates programs in order to improve them. The 40 people who attended the workshop were highly engaged in the presentation which sparked a lot of great discussion.
