Join us for Cultivating Ensembles in STEM Education and Research

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 to Friday, June 12, 2015

Are you exploring, researching, or practicing performance in science? Join us for Cultivating Ensembles in STEM Education and Research 2015 hosted by UC Berkeley TRUST Center. This conference is dedicated to developing a community of practice and research that explores the relevance of performance and performing arts to creating STEM fields as humanistic, collaborative, inclusive, and highly innovative fields of practice.

Artists, scientists and educators are intentionally cultivating diverse and often multi disciplinary groups as working ensembles.  These ensembles are developing creativity, critical thinking, communication and innovative skills in STEM classrooms, conferences, outreach and research. Their work broadly spans areas of science communication, inclusion and arts in STEM (STEAM). If you're reading this post, consider this the innovative conference for you.

Submit your proposal and share your work on the topics and areas below.

Disciplines and practices (including, but not not limited to): computing, physics, engineering, biology, mathematics, performance based health practices, theater, dance, music, and education.

We address in multiple areas such practical questions as:

  • Inclusion: How do we create inclusive, diverse, open and collaborative communities of STEM practitioners?
  • Communication and Outreach: How do we talk to one another, people outside of our discipline, or those not in STEM careers?
  • Education and Professional Development: How does performance and STEAM affect learning content and developing professional identity?
  • Group Dynamics and Creativity: What interactions and social make up are needed for innovative research?
  • Cross and Multidisciplinary: How does performance foster cross-disciplinary approaches and understanding?

Dates: June 10-12th, 2015
Registration: $300 General, $175 Post doctoral fellow, $100 Students
Conference location: UC Berkeley and Oakland Marriott.

Modeled after the CESTEMER meeting co-convened in 2012 by Holmes, Hug and Alonzo.
