An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching 6/12/17
Jun 12 – Aug 6 all-day

8 week MOOC, starting June 12

CIRTL’s introductory MOOC, An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching, runs June 12 through August 6. Students will learn about a broad range of evidence-based STEM teaching techniques, including: principles of learning, designing learning objectives, assessing student learning, the benefits of active learning, inclusive teaching approaches, and lesson planning. 

This course is designed to provide future STEM faculty, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows with an introduction to effective teaching strategies and the research that supports them.

The goal of the eight-week course is to equip the next generation of STEM faculty to be effective teachers, thus improving the learning experience for the thousands of students they will teach.

The course draws on the expertise of experienced STEM faculty, educational researchers, and staff from university teaching centers, many of them affiliated with the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), a network of research universities collaborating in the preparation of STEM graduate students and post-docs as future faculty members.

What you’ll learn

  • Key learning principles such as the role of mental models in learning and the importance of practice and feedback
  • Fundamental elements of course design, including the development of learning objectives and assessments of learning aligned with those objectives
  • Teaching strategies for fostering active learning and inclusive classroom environments
