The Summit for Examining the Potential of Crosscutting Concepts to Support Three-Dimensional Learning in Science and Engineering


The Summit for Examining the Potential of Crosscutting Concepts to Support Three-Dimensional Learning is an NSF funded conference focused on articulating theories of action about how the crosscutting concepts support learning in and across science and engineering disciplines. This 2.5-day invited summit will draw from the expertise of attendees to envision the roles that crosscutting concepts can play in supporting learning across learning environments, and to discuss the implications of those theories on other lines of research (e.g. policy, curriculum, assessment). The summit will result in the development of a proceedings, that will be disseminated within the science education community.
