Originally envisioned and created by the Title V- Educational Excellence Project (EEP) in collaboration with Laredo Community College, but now being ran by Title III- Serving Youth in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (SYSTEM) aims to provide the TAMIU Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) faculty with a fully equipped classroom with the latest and most advanced technology and a set of 24 laptops to hold professional development sessions that will ensure STEM learning and instruction of the highest quality for all STEM students. These efforts will focus on improving faculty skills in organizing and integrating knowledge for students, developing pedagogical skills, sharpening performance skills, gaining experience in serving effectively different groups of students in the classroom, and learning how to use technology to enhance teaching and learning.
The expected outcome of the use of the Title III- Teaching Technology & Learning Center for STEM Faculty Development Sessions will be a place that will offer professional development sessions to promote the use of technology in the classroom to for the achievement of student success, and the increase of retention, and graduation rates.
