MOOC: An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching
Eight weeks, starting June 24
An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching is an asynchronous, open, online course designed to provide graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and other aspiring faculty in STEM disciplines with an overview of effective college teaching strategies and the research that supports them. This course is also suitable for other interested university staff, faculty, and administrators. The goal of the eight-week course is to equip the next generation of faculty to be effective teachers, thus improving the learning experience for the thousands of students they will teach.

The CIRTL Online Summer Institute on Scientific Teaching is designed specifically for grad students and postdocs new to teaching. In this five-day institute, participants will experience a thorough introduction to the core ideas that ground CIRTL's approach to STEM education: learning-through-diversity, learning communities, evidence-based teaching, and teaching-as-research.
