Learning occurs through a series of dynamic interactions between individuals and their social and physical environments. For science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM), scholars, teacher educators, teachers, and learners of all ages are broadening notions of what it means to think, learn, and engage in these disciplines. Questions arise, such as "How does physical movement relate to conceptual development? Or how can learning design draw on new ways of creating and making?" In this colloquium series, we’ll explore these questions and more as we examine how human activities such as moving and making contribute to cross-disciplinary engagement in mathematics, science, and the arts.
