us national academy of sciences convene the “art-science-technology” villages of practice


The US National Academies of Science, Medicine and Engineering are convening our community of art/sci/tech practice to discuss and further the recommendations in the report they issued on how to think anew about integrating the arts and humanities, including design, into higher education science/engineering/math and medicine – this will be a real gathering of our villages and tribes-  its been a 20 year process of convincing the us national academies to take the stem to steam movement ( or whatever you prefer to call it ) seriously – perhaps we can leverage this to convince academies in science in other countries to get to work !!

Mark your calendars for the National Convening on the Integration of Arts, Humanities, and STEMM* in Higher Education on April 12, 2019 in Washington, DC! The event is brought to you by the Board on Higher Education and Workforce of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The National Academies will convene hundreds of leaders and practitioners in education, workforce, policy, and industry.

Given that today’s challenges and opportunities are at once technical and human, addressing them calls for the full range of human knowledge and creativity. Higher education should strive to offer all students–regardless of degree or area of concentration–an education that exposes them to diverse forms of human knowledge and inquiry. Through this event the National Academies will convene thought leaders and practitioners and shed light on teaching approaches that will empower students to learn and apply knowledge in real-world settings. Join us for a day of inspiring and informative conversations on improving higher education to better prepare students for work, life, and citizenship.
