STEM researchers and those charged with developing broader impacts plans, activities and proposals are increasingly looking for innovative strategies and generative collaborations. Broadening participation of underrepresented groups in these activities is a particular challenge that designers and researchers of cyberlearning experiences are building knowledge about. After a brief review of how investments in infrastructure have changed the landscape of informal STEM education expertise and resources, this will be a facilitated discussion of what cyberlearning projects bring to the table.
