Abstract

In this symposium, we examine a unique STEM learning environment that is de signed to be intere st-driven, learner-centered, and inclusive of many different types of learners. The four papers presented here demonstrate the unique features of the FUSE learning environment that empower learners. Respectively, they describe the ways in which this environment allows learners to engage in diverse learning arrangements (Stevens, Satwicz, & McCarthy, 2008), enables them to develop and draw on each other's relative expertise, facilitates learner agency, and provides learners with a toolkit of knowledge and practices to use in other STEM learning contexts.
