Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
The topics may be of interest to students in other STEM programs, including social science and humanities, but the emphasis is on specific areas of interest to students in STEM research and education. No other course at GW combines those two aspects.
For the GWTeach program, this topics course will allow us to respond to current and emerging topics of interest to students in the program. Another purpose is to support the Minor in STEM Teaching by allowing students to combine the two-credit LA Pedagogy course with the one-credit topics course as an option for completing 3 credits toward the Minor.
