The AAU STEM Initiative supports evidence-based teaching practice and influences the culture of STEM departments at AAU universities so that faculty members are encouraged to use student-centered, evidence-based, active learning pedagogy in their classes.
Shown below is a framework created by the AAU project outlining key elements to guide institutional and faculty commitment to evidence-based teaching in STEM.

The framework is intended to be a living resource that showcases innovative institutional efforts that are already being conducted by universities to implement elements of the framework. Showcased below are institutional efforts mapped to elements of the framework.
