First-year students have to navigate so many different things - academic and personal - when they start college. For some, being in a large lecture hall could be totally foreign, and for others, they may need help getting up to speed on basic undergraduate STEM topics. How can instructors adapt their courses to help first-year students succeed in the sciences?

Hear from Dr. Pamela Bowen Smith as she discusses her experience at Pennsylvania's Bloosmburg University.

*Facilitated by:*
Pamela Bowen Smith, Professor of Speech-Language Pathology, Bloomsburg University

*CIRTL Cast Series: February: Learning in the Active STEM Classroom*
Research - and common sense - shows that students learn better in active classrooms when compared to traditional lecture-based courses. But with so many teaching methods to choose from, how do you know which are most beneficial? In this series we explore several innovative strategies designed to enhance STEM learning. This series is organized by University of Houston through the CIRTL Network.
