Exploring the Roles that Collectives, Individuals, and Networks Play in Meeting the Needs of Place

In-person experiences will include activities that physically engage participants with people and places around O‘ahu. Online experiences will include workshops, poster sessions, and talk stories/paper presentations. Whether you participate locally on Oʻahu or from a distance, join fellow STEMS² enthusiasts who share a passion for exploring the roles that place, culture, and identity play in interdisciplinary education.

Proposals Due March 31st – Submit a Proposal

Now accepting proposals for online and in-person talk story sessions, paper sessions, performances, and workshops, as well as in-person service learning experiences and workshops. Grounded in the value of Aʻo (to teach and learn in a reciprocal relationship), we work to create inclusive, interactive spaces to hear as many voices as possible in multiple session formats. Please submit a proposal that you believe relates to this year’s symposium theme. To support your proposal design, below is a list of suggested topic areas:

  • Planning and implementing STEMS² Units and/or other place and culture-based interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary planning approaches

  • Building relationships between schools and communities that foster authentic and reciprocal partnerships

  • Sessions or event proposals that intentionally build relationships or connections among educators and practitioners

  • Research approaches and projects exploring the impacts and possibilities for place and culture-based interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary practices.

  • Stories of challenge and failing forward when aiming to transform your personal practice, systemic structures, and dominant narratives.
