Do teachers have the resources to provide STEM education to meet the employment crisis?

Preparing Students for the NCLEX-RN: STEM in the Classroom.

Colleagues,

Many of our students wish to move from adult education to the healthcare career pathway. I wanted to share with you a couple sample questions of the NCLEX-RN exam. How are we preparing with the basic math skills needed to answer these questions? What about the vocabulary? How are we preparing students to learn new vocabulary? 

I'd love to hear your thoughts about preparing our students for the healthcare field. 

Sincerely,

What's all the buzz about OERs and STEM

Hi all, 

As we are approaching the new academic year, I invite you to explore the OER STEM Project. Check out the section on Ways to Use OER for STEM Instruction. The topics found in OERS can be suited for science instruction and can help fill the gap between existing materials and needed materials. 

Do you use OERs in your science classroom? If so, what do you use and how do you integrate them into your instruction? If you have not yet used OERs, what support do you need to begin using them? 

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

What about those soft skills?
