Carnegie Mellon Inaugural Simon Initiative Lecture: "Taking a Scientific Approach to Science Education"
Jan 31, 2014
How can science be taught better? Who better to answer that question than a Nobel Laureate. Carl Wieman holds a joint appointment as Professor of Physics and of the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University. Since winning the Nobel Prize in Physics with two others in 2001, Wieman has dedicated himself to improving science education. Concurrent with the launch of CMU's Simon Initiative last November, President Suresh invited Dr. Wieman to join the new Global Learning Council (GLC), which includes experts from industry, academia and foundations, who are committed to using science and technology to enhance learning through the open sharing of data and best practices. Wieman will challenge his audience to radically re-think the way education is delivered.
