Want to know how the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at University of Cincinnati gave more than 500 high school students a head start in college STEM studies over the course of just one academic year?
Interested in learning about the streaming video/flipped classroom strategy used to roll out high-quality college instruction to 12 high schools, including rural, urban and all-girls schools?
Would you like to hear first-hand from a student who was on a non-STEM academic career path until she was exposed to engineering in high school?
Here’s your chance to get answers to all of the above in a live webinar with Eugene Rutz, the academic director who spearheaded the program, and UC freshman Gretchen Kellerstrass, who pivoted her college and career plans after taking just one dual-enrollment engineering course.
Join Mr. Rutz and Ms. Kellerstrass as they walk you through the program from two different perspectives. You’ll learn:
- How the program overcame affordability and scalability challenges by leveraging video learning modules created by college professors for anytime, anywhere viewing by high school students
- Why they’ve achieved success by introducing topics to younger students, in unexpected places and making sure they’re getting quality instruction and college credit for all their hard work
- How appropriate use of technology can overcome some of the significant barriers to providing dual enrollment courses
- Why it’s important to incorporate activities that show students how the lessons will apply to their lives and careers (That’s another way of saying, “Yes. You’ll use this when you’re an adult.”)
