Mathematics and Science Education Program
The Annual Colloquium on Research in Math and Science Education was initiated in 1996 to enhance the quality of graduate student research in education, to set expectations for intellectual interaction among educators as well as to create and sustain the spirit of sharing research findings. The major goals of the Colloquium are to foster expression of individual creativity and encourage scholarly contribution to the field, promote educational leadership and individual interest. The Colloquium is the great opportunity for those educators who are actively involved in their professional development.
Since 1997, each Colloquium has featured a keynote speaker
Jeff Todd, Graduate Student, UMass Lowell
Dr. Michelle Scribner- MacLean, UMass Lowell
Dr. Joyce Cutler,
Dr. James Kuchler,
