Abstract for the conference program

This session will describe two programs Georgia Tech has in place to help nurture STEM education leaders, one for graduate students and one for faculty. Both programs use the learner-centered teaching paradigm, backwards design as a framework, and peer learning communities. Alumni of the two programs will share their experience and benefits in a panel format. Facilitators invite analysis of program ideas for possible transfer to other contexts.
