On March 17-18, AGS is partnering with The Center for STEM Education for Girls at Harpeth Hall to host Dr. Sheryl Sorby for a two-day 3D Spatial Skills Teacher Workshop.
This workshop includes:
- A review of the relevant research findings regarding the impact of spatial skills training for improved STEM outcomes
- Hands-on instruction with the curriculum developed by Dr. Sorby that is designed to help students develop their 3D spatial skills
Participants will learn key strategies for helping their students to develop their 3D spatial skills. These strategies can be readily implemented in K12 and university classrooms to help students, especially females, improve their 3D spatial skills.
Dr. Sheryl Sorby is a Professor in the Engineering Education and Innovation Center at The Ohio State University and Professor Emerita of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics at Michigan Technological University. She has served as Program Director within the Division of Undergraduate Education at the National Science Foundation. Her research interests include graphics and visualization. She has been the principal investigator or co-principal investigator on more than $15M in external funding for educational projects and is the author of more than sixty journal publications and seven textbooks.
