Online Course: Teaching-as-Research @ Online
Nov 27 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Teaching-as-Research involves taking a deliberate and systematic approach to investigating, reflecting on, and improving one’s own teaching (see: https://www.cirtl.net/p/core-ideas-teaching-as-research). A Teaching-as-Research project follows an inquiry cycle: formulating a question about student learning; defining measures of success; identifying or creating assessments and learning activities; implementing the learning activity; collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data; and reflecting on the experience.

This course will provide a mentored learning community for participants who wish to develop and plan a Teaching-as-Research project (to be carried out in 2018) in a STEM or SBE discipline. Participants will work on refining their research question, conducting a literature review, composing learning objectives for their project, and identifying appropriate learning activities and assessments that align with those objectives. Throughout the course, participants will draft components of their project plan and provide feedback on each other’s work; they will have a completed plan by the end of the course. Sessions will be highly interactive and require active engagement and participation.

This is an intermediate-level course and assumes a working knowledge of, and experience with, evidence-based teaching methods. When registering, potential participants will be asked to fill out an application.

SPEAKER BIO

Brandon Eicher (’07) serves as the Director of UCLA Ventures, a community-built venture portfolio that supports UCLA and its entrepreneurial ecosystem. Since he returned to the university in early 2016, UCLA Ventures has grown rapidly, adding some of UCLA’s most prominent entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to the group’s already vibrant membership base. Under his leadership, this cohort of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, which is committed to building and sustaining UCLA’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, has pledged hundreds of thousands of dollars in equity in their respective venture-backed companies to UCLA Ventures. This support will have a lasting impact on the university, its students, and its alumni.

Prior to returning to UCLA, Brandon earned a Master’s degree in International Relations and International Economics with a specialization in Finance from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. He then moved to Chicago, where he worked as a Consultant for Grenzebach Glier & Associates (GG&A) in its higher education practice area. While at GG&A, Brandon served an impressive client list, which included Cornell University, Dartmouth College, INSEAD, Johns Hopkins University, Princeton University, and the University of Queensland, among others.
