We have carried out a faculty change initiative to support incorporation of student-centered teaching strategies in STEM courses at our university. In semi-structured interviews, we asked participants to explain the factors that influence their pedagogical decisions. As a result, we have created an Ecological Model for STEM Faculty Change, which describes the personal, social, and environmental factors that influence faculty decision-making about student-centered teaching. While the specific factors may change depending on context, the ecological model is broadly useful for identifying levers for change.
