Inclusive STEM Teaching Project MOOC

7-week Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) starting June 15

Join the NSF-funded Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) initiative for a 7-week Massive Open Online Course this summer on inclusive STEM teaching practices. The asynchronous course is designed to advance the awareness, self-efficacy, and ability of STEM faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and staff so that they may cultivate inclusive learning environments for all of their students.

Students enrolled in the MOOC have the option to join accompanying learning communities led by trained facilitators at institutions across the country. Learning communities have weekly online meetings to provide space for further discussion, reflection, and community building.
