The three-day STEM Faculty Institute on Teaching, which takes place June 14–16, 2016 from 9:00 am–3:00 pm, will bring together Washington University full-time faculty from Arts & Sciences and Engineering, as well as St. Louis area STEM faculty, to develop strategies for incorporating evidence-based teaching practices that can improve student learning and encourage undergraduates to persist in STEM majors.
Interactive presentations will include topics such as
Developing Strategies for Inclusive Teaching
Applying Cognitive Science to Improve Teaching
Crafting Engaging Clicker Questions
Facilitating Collaborative Learning with In-Class Group Work
Teaching Students How to Read and Evaluate Scientific Literature
Each afternoon, participants will gather in working groups to design active-learning activities that can be integrated into their courses.
STEM FIT is developed and facilitated by The Teaching Center, with support from the Teagle Foundation.
