Summary and recommendations

Veenstra, Cindy P. and Padro, Fernando F. and Furst-Bowe, Julie A. (2012) Summary and recommendations. In: Advancing the STEM Agenda for Education, the Workplace and Society, July 19-20, 2011, University of Wisconsin-Stout, Wisconsin United States .


In educational research and quality management alike, models for under­standing the underlying system are required. Assessments and results can better understood within the context of a model. It was a challenge to establish the order of the chapters in this publication since all include important concepts and information about advancing the STEM agenda; however, we decided to start with the collaborative models because we recognize the importance of models in defining systems thinking and developing appropriate thought processes. Furthermore, in other ASQ Education Division publications, we have discussed the importance of successful transitions from one education system to another in the overall P-16 system; from K-12 schools to college and universities and from universities to the workplace. In between we see the work of the university faculty in improving the delivery of STEM education in their college classrooms. In addition, we had a special interest in gender issues in STEM education, which had its own section.
