Scientific teaching workshop
Patrice Ludwig, Department of Biology at JMU, in collaboration with Marta Bechtel, Department of Biology at JMU, and Kerry Cresawn, Department of Biology at JMU
This mini-grant will fund a one-day Introduction to Scientific Teaching workshop to bring together STEM faculty members in order to initiate course redesign in accordance with the principles of Scientific Teaching and backward design. The overarching goal of the workshop is to have faculty initiate the process of course redesign based on the principles of Scientific Teaching by first defining course learning outcomes and them developing teaching activities to meet the learning objectives. This workshop will be held in the spring of 2014.
