Fellows' Videos

"Windows into STEM Classrooms" Videos

Videos of democratic teaching applied to a problem of practice by STEM Ed Fellows.


Each fellowship culminates in the creation of a Window into STEM Classrooms, WIC for short. The WICs provide an overview of the How Might We question that each fellow used to guide their work as well as the solution that was iteratively developed.
