"I knew I was going to enjoy this book before I started to read it, as to any passionate, mentoring enthusiast, the list of contributors reads like a 'who's who' in the best of mentoring with chapters by some of the greatest global thought leaders and practitioners in mentoring ... This book is a great reference for anyone wanting to set up a diversity mentoring programme of any type, as many of the lessons are very transferable. It is also such a joy to read of the richness of learning that mentoring can bring to mentors and mentees alike, a real treasure for the bookshelf of anyone interested in mentoring programmes."

AICTP Journal, November 2012 "Developing Successful Diversity Mentoring Programmes fills a gap in the mentoring literature. The editors introduce the topic of diversity with sensitivity and awareness. They then bring together a comprehensive range of real case studies that provide a wonderful resource of examples of diversity mentoring programmes across a wide range of disability, gender, race and culture contexts. The case studies themselves examine necessary programme processes, such as matching and also consider the challenges and lessons learned. The book is informed, insightful and inspiring and will be of immense use to the mentoring community." Dr Elaine Cox, Director of Postgraduate Coaching and Mentoring Programmes, Oxford Brookes University, UK "This book provides insightful analyses of diversity mentoring principles and their application to real world practice. It is highly timely, internationally relevant and should appeal to scholars, policy makers and practitioners. In these pages you will find a rich mixture of the best examples of mentor

Innovative Learning Environments in STEM Higher Education Excerpt :

As explored in this open access book, higher education in STEM fields is influenced by many factors, including education research, government and school policies, financial considerations, technology limitations, and acceptance of innovations by faculty and students. In 2018, Drs. Ryoo and Winkelmann explored the opportunities, challenges, and future research initiatives of innovative learning environments (ILEs) in higher education STEM disciplines in their pioneering project: eXploring the Future of Innovative Learning Environments (X-FILEs). Workshop participants evaluated four main ILE categories: personalized and adaptive learning, multimodal learning formats, cross/extended reality (XR), and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). This open access book gathers the perspectives expressed during the X-FILEs workshop and its follow-up activities. It is designed to help inform education policy makers, researchers, developers, and practitioners about the adoption and implementation of ILEs in higher education.

The Chicago Guide to College Science Teaching Excerpt :

Higher education is a strange beast. Teaching is a critical skill for scientists in academia, yet one that is barely touched upon in their professional training—despite being a substantial part of their career. This book is a practical guide for anyone teaching STEM-related academic disciplines at the college level, from graduate students teaching lab sections and newly appointed faculty to well-seasoned professors in want of fresh ideas. Terry McGlynn’s straightforward, no-nonsense approach avoids off-putting pedagogical jargon and enables instructors to become true ambassadors for science. For years, McGlynn has been addressing the need for practical and accessible advice for college science teachers through his popular blog Small Pond Science. Now he has gathered this advice as an easy read—one that can be ingested and put to use on short deadline. Readers will learn about topics ranging from creating a syllabus and developing grading rubrics to mastering learning management systems and ensuring safety during lab and fieldwork. The book also offers advice on cultivating productive relationships with students, teaching assistants, and colleagues.

Mom the Chemistry Professor Excerpt :

When is the "right" time? How can I meet the demands of a professorship whilst caring for a young family? Choosing to become a mother has a profound effect on the career path of women holding academic positions, especially in the physical sciences. Yet many women successfully manage to do both. In this second edition, which is a project of the Women Chemists Committee (WCC) of the American Chemical Society (ACS), 40 inspirational personal accounts describe the challenges and rewards of combining motherhood with an academic career in chemistry. The authors are all women at different stages of their career and from a range of institution types, in both tenure and non-tenure track positions. The authors include women from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, who became mothers at different stages of their career, and who have a variety of family structures. Aimed at undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry, as well as postdoctoral fellows and early career faculty, these contributions serve as examples for women considering a career in academia but worry about how this can be balanced with other important aspects of life. The authors describe how they overcame particular challenges, but also highlight aspects of the system, which could be improved to accommodate women academics, and particularly encourage more women to take on academic positions in the sciences.

STEM and the Social Good Excerpt :

This compilation of empirical studies interrogates the global high-speed train of STEM education, particularly as a promise of social, economic, and political enfranchisement for marginalized communities. In this book, scholars of race, education, and learning offer a range of analyses from which to consider the "who", "what", and "toward ends" of STEM education. Together with scholarly commentaries, the studies frame STEM learning as a personal and political enterprise worthy of closer examination in the lives of children, the work of adults, and the making of nations. Thus, the studies vary in scope and scale, but coalesce in surfacing the ideologies and values underlying the rapid ingestion of STEM in schools and communities as a "social good for all". Readers will journey through a Latinx student’s reflections on social justice mathematics, African American primary school students studying water and justice, Indigenous families engaged in storytelling with robotics, college STEM mentors’ work with youth, an online portal created for youth in Singapore to envision a STEM-infused future; and finally, frameworks for teaching and research that engage marginalized children’s histories, cultural practices and sensemaking. The socio-political grounding and visioning of these works makes this a must-read for researchers, teachers, teacher educators and policy makers in STEM. The chapters in this book were originally published in a special issue of the journal, Cognition and Instruction.

Handbook of Research on STEM Education Excerpt :

The Handbook of Research on STEM Education represents a groundbreaking and comprehensive synthesis of research and presentation of policy within the realm of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. What distinguishes this Handbook from others is the nature of integration of the disciplines that is the founding premise for the work – all chapters in this book speak directly to the integration of STEM, rather than discussion of research within the individual content areas. The Handbook of Research on STEM Education explores the most pressing areas of STEM within an international context. Divided into six sections, the authors cover topics including: the nature of STEM, STEM learning, STEM pedagogy, curriculum and assessment, critical issues in STEM, STEM teacher education, and STEM policy and reform. The Handbook utilizes the lens of equity and access by focusing on STEM literacy, early childhood STEM, learners with disabilities, informal STEM, socio-scientific issues, race-related factors, gender equity, cultural-relevancy, and parental involvement. Additionally, discussion of STEM education policy in a variety of countries is included, as well as a focus on engaging business/industry and teachers in advocacy for STEM education. The Handbook’s 37 chapters provide a deep and meaningful landscape of the implementation of STEM over the past two decades. As such, the findings that are presented within provide the reader with clear directions for future research into effective practice and supports for integrated STEM, which are grounded in the literature to date.

House of Commons Business Innovation and Skills Committee Open Access HC 99 I Excerpt :

The Government's commitment to increasing access to published research findings and its desire to achieve full open access are welcomed in this report from the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee. However, whilst Gold open access - where authors publish their articles in an open access journal that provides free immediate open access to all of its articles on the publisher's website - is a desirable ultimate goal, focusing on it during the transition to a fully open access world is a mistake. The Government and Research Council UK should reconsider their preference for Gold open access during the five year transition period, and give due regard to the evidence of the vital role that Green open access and repositories have to play as the UK moves towards full open access. (Authors opting for Green open access publish in any subscription journal, and then make their peer-reviewed final draft freely accessible online by self-archiving or depositing the article in a repository (either institutional or disciplinary) upon acceptance for publication.) Other recommendations include: promotion of standardisation and compliance across subject and institutional repositories; mitigation against the impact on universities of paying Article Processing Charges out of their own reserves; introduce a reduced VAT rate for e-journals; non-disclosure clauses should not be used in publishing contracts that include the use of public funds; BIS must review its consultation processes to ensure that lessons are learned from the lack of involvement of businesses, particularly SMEs, in the formation of open access policy

African American Women Chemists in the Modern Era Excerpt :

This is the second of two books about African-American female chemists. The first book (African-American Women Chemists, 2011) focused on the early pioneers--women chemists from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Act. African American Women Chemists in the Modern Era focuses on contemporary women who have benefited from the Civil Rights Act and are now working as chemists or chemical engineers. This book was produced by taking the oral history of women who are leaders in their field and who wanted to tell the world how they suceeded. It features eighteen amazing women in this book and each of them has a claim to fame, despite hiding in plain sight. These women reveal the history of their lives from youth to adult. Overall, Jeannette Brown aims to inspire women and minorities to pursue careers in the sciences, as evidenced by the successful career paths of the women that came before them.
