Carnegie Mellon University learning engineers are heading to rural Panama to help teachers improve student outcomes in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) courses. Greg Bunyea, a recent graduate of the Masters of Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science program, will lead the work.
While training and feedback opportunities abound for K-12 educators, the same can't be said for instructors in higher education. Currently, the most effective mechanism for professional development is for an expert to observe a lecture and provide personalized feedback. But a new system developed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers offers a comprehensive real-time sensing system that is inexpensive and scalable to create a continuous feedback loop for the instructor.
