About the Center

The Oklahoma State University (OSU) Center for Research on STEM Teaching and Learning (CRSTL) engages in a range of collaborative projects which promise extraordinary outcomes in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education. Our collaborative research and outreach model aims to improve STEM education by matching the needs of Oklahoma’s classrooms with the innovations of OSU’s premiere scientists and engineers. 

CRSTL strives to be a hub for research on teaching and learning in Oklahoma and across the science and mathematics disciplines.  We welcome faculty cohorts from STEM fields interested in a safe place for creating and defining innovative ideas for engaging educational programs.  Although housed in the College of Education, Health & Aviation, CRSTL coordinates research and outreach efforts in STEM teaching and learning among the College of Arts and Sciences; the College of Agricultural Science and Natural Resources; the College of Human Sciences; and the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology. 


The Center for Research in STEM Teaching and Learning (CRSTL) will nurture and encourage collaborative endeavors in transformative research on STEM teaching and learning that promise extraordinary outcomes in technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education at all levels (K-20) and improved STEM education in Oklahoma and the nation.
