About The Speaker:

Shelley Goldman is Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs and Professor at Stanford Graduate School of Education and, by courtesy, at the Hasso-Plattner Institute for Design Research. Shelley is an educational anthropologist interested in the idea that learning takes place when students are actively engaged. She currently studies how families engage with mathematics in the course of everyday problem solving. Her quest to give people the tools they need to collaborate and accomplish learning has led her to study and design computer technologies. Goldman’s work focuses on creating opportunities for rich STEM learning, and for understanding how design thinking and technologies can create access and be transformational. Current work includes bringing broadening participation in STEM via family activities, design-based engagements, and through empathy work with scientists doing outreach.
