Human Rights in STEM Education - AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition Meeting


A growing number of STEM educators are finding that integrating human rights into their teaching sparks their students’ interest in applying research theories and methods, engages them in research on issues of relevance to their community or society more broadly, and gives practical context to scholarly debates around ethical responsibilities, and the roles of stakeholders. Can a broader adoption of these experimental approaches improve STEM education, including learning outcomes, retention, and diversity? What resources can be drawn from the human rights education movement’s practices and pedagogies? What are the opportunities for collaboration across disciplines to strengthen these efforts? Meeting participants will learn from case examples and contribute to discussions aimed at identifying key challenges, considering potential models for integrating human rights into STEM education, and articulating needs and opportunities for mentoring and other types of support.
