The 2018 Harvard Summer Institute on Scientific Teaching is a two-day workshop that will convene a community of STEM faculty interested in applying evidence-based techniques and principles to their teaching. Workshop Schedule
The goals of the two-day workshop are to help prepare faculty to:
- Maximize the value of class time using evidence-based pedagogies,
- Design assignments and courses that effectively teach students how to use disciplinary concepts and skills,
- Apply principles from cognitive neuroscience to designing syllabi and assignments.
Opportunities to develop and refine course materials with colleagues will be integrated throughout the two-day workshop. In addition to offering faculty the opportunity to learn and practice new teaching skills, the Summer Institute is also designed to foster a collaborative, interdisciplinary community around the scholarship and practice of teaching in STEM disciplines.
