The College of St. Scholastica hosts its seventh annual 21st Century Teaching and Learning Conference, a professional development event for current and aspiring teachers. It’s a one-day conference for making connections with leaders in the field of education.
The day-long conference begins with an keynote address at 8:30 a.m. from Roni Ellington, Ph.D., an expert on how to cultivate student success in science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related disciplines. Ellington will speak on “Moving Diversity and Inclusion from the Margins to the Center of STEM Classroom Practice: Transformative Strategies for Teaching Across Discipline.” Trained as a mathematics educator, Ellington has written several scholarly articles on STEM education, parental involvement, and successfully navigating the STEM pipeline, particularly for minority students. She is an associate professor of Mathematics Education and coordinator of the graduate programs in Mathematics Education at Morgan State University, a historically black college in Baltimore.
