The Teaching and Learning Center at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville is offering a free 1.5 day summer seminar on Teaching and Learning for graduate students and Postdoctoral Fellows, entitled “Facilitating Undergraduate Evidence-Based Learning in STEM" or "F.U.E.L. for STEM.”
This is a wonderful opportunity for participants who are interested in developing their knowledge and understanding of the most STEM effective teaching practices (defined broadly to include the broadest range of sciences, such as agriculture and psychology).
This non-credit workshop series will meet Friday, July 28th from 8:00am to 12:30pm and Saturday, July 29th from 8:30am to 4:30pm. The event will take place in Strong Hall. As the room number is to be determined once the final registrations are counted, participants will be emailed the room number closer to the workshop date.
Topics to be covered in F.U.E.L. include:
o Science Identity and Beliefs and their Influence on Teaching Practice
o Evidence-Based Teaching and Learning
o Learning Through Diversity
o Pedagogical Content Knowledge
o Creating Effective Learning Communities
o Course Design and Assessment
o Teaching as Research
Upon successful completion, students will achieve CIRTL certification (Center for Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning) at the Associate Level.
Limited seats are available. Please register here. For further information, contact Ferlin McGaskey (firstname.lastname@example.org) or TK Francis (email@example.com).
