Faculty and future faculty are invited to apply to attend a 2017 Summer Institute on Scientific Teaching. Accepted participants will learn practical strategies for enhancing student learning through the principles of scientific teaching: active learning, assessment and inclusive teaching. Participants will have opportunities to engage in interactive sessions, work in small groups with a trained facilitator, and present instructional materials for feedback and review. Here are the dates for each region:
June 5-10: Northstar June 19 – 23: California June 20 – 23: Northwest
June 25 – 29: Northeast July 17 – 21: Gulf Coast July 24 – 28: Midwest
We encourage participants to apply to the Summer Institute that best matches their home institution type & geographic area, but welcome applications to an alternative site due to scheduling or travel constraints. Applications will be made available in early March and are due throughout April 2017. See the website for details.
