Scientific Teaching Workshop
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
We welcome you to join us for a day of workshops based on the principles of Scientific Teaching (9am -4pm 18 August 2014). This approach to course design capitalizes on our tendencies as scientists to prefer to work from evidence. The goal of the day is to introduce participants to the principles of scientific teaching, and to stimulate conversation amongst our colleagues around themes common to our sub-disciplines. Participants will develop action plans for implementing each of the workshop themes into their own courses. Consider signing up as a group if you would like to focus on cross course integration of content or skill themes! The day will include 4 workshops: Scientific Teaching, Active Learning, Assessment, and Diversity. There is no cost for the event and lunch and snacks will be provided. The link to the registration form is below. Once we have a list of participants, we will send details for the day including location and parking information.
