CIRTL's MOOC on evidence-based STEM teaching is now open for registration, and we are offering an online learning community for MOOC participants who would also like to attend synchronous weekly discussion sessions to deepen engagement with course content.
Due to high interest, we're expanding the cap for our workshop on teaching with an inclusive mindset from 40 to 200; about 60 seats remain. Our event series on high-impact teaching practices and on teaching at community colleges have no cap and are open to the public with no advance registration required.
Our course on gender equity in STEM and our workshop on addressing math anxiety are at capacity.
Beyond CIRTL, this fall the Society for the Advancement of Biology Education Research is hosting a 7-part online series on building inclusive academic environments and advancing racial justice in STEM education. Read more on their website.
