MetadataShow full item record
Within the past semester, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Library (EPSL) has hosted a speaker series called STEAM Salon. This informal series, organized by the Research Commons at University Libraries, brings in faculty speakers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) disciplines at the University of Maryland (UMD) to present on their current research. Topics are from various areas of research and faculty speakers come from all over campus. Students regularly attend these talks, either independently or as part of their coursework. This poster will explore how these talks engage student learning outside of the classroom and create an informal learning environment.
