Goals, Purposes, and Plans for the AIMS Center Colloquium Series

In an attempt to provide opportunities for the Mathematics and Science teaching communities around the region to keep abreast of both the research that the AIMS Center for Math & Science Education, and the broader research community are finding, the Center will be putting on a series of “Colloquium” talks. These talks will be given by a variety of experts in the field, members of the Research Team of the AIMS Center, and other experts from around the country.

This year we have scheduled 9 sessions. Each session will take place on the 4th Monday of each month from 4:30 – 6:00 pm. All sessions will take place in the Richard Thiessen Conference Center at the AIMS Center for Math and Science Education located on the campus of Fresno Pacific University.
