Today active learning is changing the landscape of higher education. Although the concept of student engagement is the same, approaches are different from discipline to discipline. This is the reason why we need Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) for active learning. In this symposium, we will focus on science teaching at the university level. Professor Steve Pollock will talk about the teaching reform of physics at the University of Colorado Boulder. Professor Akira Ushijima will report the mathematics teaching reform at Kanazawa University. Professor Sachiko Tosa will discuss her international comparative study of science teaching. Anyone who is interested in teaching reform and STEM education is welcome.
