Faculty Resources


Discovery-based learning is just one of several 'student centered' instructional methodologies being implemented in classrooms today. Other methods that fall within this style of curriculum design are inquiry-based learning, problem-based learning, research-based learning, and project-based learning to name a few. Although very subtle differences determine which technical category a particular implementation may belong in, they all provide an 'active learning' environment where students learn by doing.

STEPMT will provide funding in the form of faculty reassign time to enable STEM departments to rework courses to include discovery-based and other active learning techniques.
