Short Description

STEM education prepares students for professional careers. Scientists and engineers create numerous innovations driving our Nation’s global competitiveness. We need to understand and integrate key requirements of STEM education, incited strategies, along with endeavors of governments and private/public institutions. This review presents the state of STEM instruction from perspectives of essential college-level stakeholders (i.e., students, faculty, and organizations). Researching this paradigm captures the challenges in traditional STEM education, possibly demanding better investments in e-learning projects.

Abstract

A vast majority of academic disciplines and curricula in the college center around science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), which are critical to developing the skills necessary for a global workforce. Rapid changes in the pedagogical frameworks, educational modes, and advances in instructional technology entail diverse challenges for key stakeholders (i.e. students, faculty, and the organizations). This presentation highlights the most relevant challenges and potential solutions in STEM higher education. The comprehensive analysis of the three stakeholders’ perspectives elucidates significant contemporary aspects impacting the fields. The goal is to further understand the factors impeding expected learning outcomes. This would help identify as well as bridge the gaps among these three pillars of instruction, possibly forming a foundation for improved content, delivery, and efficacy of higher education in STEM.
