A Primer on Evidence-Based STEM Teaching
A free, online course began on Monday, Oct. 6th and will run for 7 weeks. It's not too late to join! Weekly topics include:
- Principles of Learning
- Learning Objectives, Assessment of Learning
- Cooperative Learning, Peer Learning, Lecturing
- Inquiry-Based Labs, Problem-Based Learning, Writing to Learn
- Inclusive Teaching, Student Motivation
- Lesson Planning
It's sponsored by NSF, and I can testifiy that the week 1 videos are informative and enlightening. You also have the ability to join a Learning Community in your area to discuss the topics in greater detail.
While the stated target audience is graduate students, postdocs, and new faculty, I have seen forum posts by a number of folks who are experienced faculty or educational technologists. I encourage you to take a look!
