Second Deliverable: STEM Bridge
National STEM Consortium Technical Proposal:
“Each of the STEM pathways will include a STEM
Bridge. The STEM Bridge will be programmatically
consistent across the five fields and transferable to
other colleges, and will integrate basic skills,
workforce skills, computer skills, and job readiness
training, contextualized within the pathway.”
What is the STEM Bridge?
STEM Bridge is a two-part strategy
to provide support to learners in the STEM certificate programs.
Part 1: “STEM Readiness” Course*
Embedded contextualized online course built in OLI’s Platform+ system that
quickly refreshes key skills for learners entering the credit certificates directly
Part 2: “STEM Foundations” Course*
Modularized set of curriculum “bundles” that can be adapted and inserted by
colleges wherever needed to provide support for lower level learners who need to
build foundational skills in Math and Workplace Communication before entering
the credit certificates
*STEM Readiness and Workplace Communication modules of STEM
Foundations Course complete . Available at http://oli.cmu.edu
Co-Development Partners
National STEM Consortium – STEM Bridge Team
• Carnegie Mellon’s Open Learning Initiative (OLI)
• CAST – addresses learner variability through
Universal Design for Learning and accessibility.
• Industry partners
•
Offered assistance in developing realistic scenarios and
provided company name and images – ARINC
• Industry experts offered experience in developing realistic
scenarios but company names are fictitious.
•
STEM Readiness Course
Learning Outcomes Based Curriculum
•
Surveyed all five technical teams to determine what key skills
were needed in each of the five pathways
•
Developed a master set of learning outcomes that were
common to most of the technical pathways:
ESSENTIAL SKILLS
Math
Critical Thinking and Workplace Communication
Professional Skills (Customer Service, Teamwork etc.)
STEM Readiness Course
Industry Partners Helped Develop Scenario-Based Learning
• Tell a story of a workplace that can be visualized
• Richly model a context for learning
• Help learners problem-solve issues
• Encourage reflection on work practices

STEM Readiness: Flexible Delivery
STEM Readiness Component is FLEXIBLE and
can be delivered in a variety of ways:
Hybrid format with face to face instruction to support
• Online only in class or in attached lab
• Delivered up front in first term or spread across multiple terms
as needed by each team
• Inserted into key points in the technical curriculum
• Delivered as credit or (0 credit) credit equivalent modules
•
STEM Readiness: Adaptable for Other Programs
•
Modularized units can be inserted as needed to support
credit, non-credit or technical curriculum.
•
•
Embed modules into the credit courses where they are
needed: Teamwork module might help students learn how
to collaborate more effectively in labs.
Adapt and contextualize for other career pathways
using the same learning outcomes:
•
•
Analyze information from multiple sources and determine appropriate
actions for a given situation.
Listen to a conversation and compose an effective summary of the
information.
•
•
•
ARINC Air Operations Center
Hospital Emergency Room
Police Emergency Dispatch
STEM Readiness: Learner Analytics
•
Students - instant feedback from the Learn By Doing and
Did I Get This? activities and end of module quizzes
•
Instructors - view student mastery of learning outcomes
in the instructor dashboard and tailor face to face
instruction to help students who are having challenges
with specific parts of the course
•
Colleges/Administrators – track usage
STEM Readiness: Learner Analytics - Usage
•
January 2014: Over 3,700 users across the nation
•
Over 2,600 on OLI site
•
All 10 NSC Community colleges
•
At least one High school
•
At least one Middle School

WIA Youth Program GED Prep: STEM Readiness course used as
foundation, augmented with science and history lessons. 14 of 14
students passed the GED – Historic success!
STEM Readiness = employment readiness course
Will be offered campus-wide
Technical colleges/remedial students
Connection between the STEM Readiness course and better overall
grades in the college experience?
Macomb CC:
•
Incorporating STEM Readiness course into Round 3 TAACCCT Grant
STEM Foundations
Twenty-two short modules focusing on the development
of key skills that are lacking in lower level learners will be
built in the Platform+ system.
Examples:
Identify main idea and supporting ideas and summarize.
• Build a paragraph and write a short essay.
• Prepare and deliver an effective presentation.
• Apply Order of Operations in math.
• Explain concept of a variable.
