Flexible Education Research Network (FERN)

Improving STEM education and scientific literacy has been identified as a research "Mountain of Excellence" at West Virginia University.In response to a charge from Provost Michele Wheatly to elevate the effectiveness, impact and national prominence of STEM education efforts at WVU, four colleges have initiated a strategic plan focused on a cluster hire of faculty into the Flexible Education Research Network (FERN).

FERN faculty will develop, identify and test best practices that will broaden participation, as well as improve teaching and learning in STEM fields, thereby developing a strong pipeline for STEM professionals and a scientifically literate public. FERN will have a primary focus on trans-disciplinary research, which is work that blends approaches from multiple disciplines to address research questions. Initially centered on K-16, graduate and professional training in STEM Education, FERN will be restructured as necessary to permit growth beyond STEM as future needs arise.
