About the Webinar

Although it may seem logical for two students with similar high school backgrounds and interests in STEM to have similar probabilities of obtaining a Bachelor's degree in the field, this is unfortunately not the case.

A startling new study shows that the probability of passing introductory STEM courses and successfully getting a STEM degree varies dramatically with a student's gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic status - even when their high school preparation is equal. 

Our webinar is tailored for STEM educators and administrators who are looking for practical strategies that can be put in place for the 2023-2024 year to overcome this disparity and raise pass rates. We hope you find this recording helpful. Watch it now

Labster’s webinar showcased:

  • Q&A with Dr. Nate Brown: Dr. Brown answered your questions on how institutions can teach introductory STEM courses where minoritized students are successful - without lowering academic standards. 
  • Peer Roundtable: Your peers got candid about what contributes to low STEM retention, what they are currently doing to meet students where they are, and how they plan to increase STEM pass rates, especially among non-STEM majors. 
  • Product Updates: Watch to get a sneak peek into a free, platform-wide Labster update that will enhance the learner experience and get early access to our product update announcements.

WHAT’S NEXT? You can win one of (2) $50 Amazon gift cards when you fill out our 2 min feedback survey. We’re super eager to what you think about the webinar. And stay tuned for announcements on our upcoming webinar!

Dr. Adam Hrincevich
Instructor
Logan University

Dr. Adam Hrincevich’s teaching philosophy has evolved over his 25+ years of helping students learn biological concepts. Adam has taught in the formal classroom setting with very large class sizes (~750 per semester), one-on-one in a tutorial setting, and in an online learning environment as part of a virtual classroom. While every person has the ability to present material to students, only those who have a true passion for teaching can effectively convey new concepts and theories. In a profession that has the potential to affect so many individuals, Dr. Hrincevich has taken his passion for the educational process and passed it on to students in hope of stimulating a lifetime of learning.
