Welcome to the home of the STEM Transitions initiative, led by the Center for Occupational Research and Development (CORD). With funding from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Vocational and Adult Education and under cooperative agreement with the League for Innovation in the Community College, the project builds on the work of the College and Career Transitions Initiative. At its core are six Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) career clusters that have provided the context for instructional materials demonstrating the convergence of academic and technical content at the community college level.
CORD staff, in partnership with a team of 40 community college faculty from across the country, recently completed 61 integrated curriculum projects for use in math, science, and technical courses in the six STEM-related clusters, including:
These context-based instructional materials provide faculty with teaching resources that will boost both the academic and career-related skills of their students. The projects offer:
All of the instructional materials can be found under the Integrated Projects tab at left. An evaluation form for user feedback is available within each of the projects.
We invite you to create a free user account (using the link provided at the top of this page) and begin exploring the many classroom resources housed within the integrated projects. For assistance in setting up your STEM Transitions account, download Getting Started with STEM Transitions.
