These informative webinars are part of a Broadening Participation Research (BPR) in STEM project entitled:"Investigating the Effects of Socioscientific Argumentation Development on Student Academic Success"  This BPR, led by Bethune-Cookman University in partnership with Virginia Union University (VUU), aims to expand the scientific literacy research at Bethune-Cookman University beyond the science curriculum. The project is based on the premise that the Socioscientific Issues (SSI) framework for scientific literacy development requires students to engage in dialogue, discussion, debate and argumentation. What do you think? Join the webinars to learn more and join the conversation. 

Sincerely,

STEM Central
