- learning communities,
- evidence-based teaching, and
By examining relevant literature, working online in small peer groups facilitated by topical experts, and performing structured work independently; participants will develop a deep understanding of scientific teaching.
Throughout the week, participants will design an evidence-based, inclusive teaching activity. Each day will be split between independent work, large group activities and lessons, and small group work.
Participants who successfully complete the CIRTL Summer Institute on Scientific Teaching will be named Scientific Teaching Fellows by the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching.
Finally, participants will be familiar with CIRTL's associate-level learning outcomes, making them excellent candidates for achieving associate certification (note that certification is determined on a local level by each individual member institution).
Institute ScheduleThis 5-day institute will meet online from Monday, July 23 through Friday, July 27; throughout the institute, participants will enjoy a mix of synchronous, online activities and asychronous, individual work. Each day will include online sessions from roughly 11AM CT to 1PM CT, and again from roughly 2:30PM CT to 4:45PM CT; outside of those times, participants will be expected to do anywhere from 2 to 2.5 hours of individual work per day.
