Description:
Please consider taking part in the Mobile Summer Institute on Undergraduate STEM Education (MoSI). The MoSI is a new iteration of the renowned National Academies Summer Institute (NASI) founded at the University of Wisconsin-Madison by Jo Handelsman (Yale) and Bill Wood (UC-Boulder, Emeritus). This is an intensive workshop on undergraduate science technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. NASI was developed in response to the National Research Council report, Bio2010, which called for a transformation of science education by improving classroom teaching and attracting diverse students to science.

By the end of the institute, you will have:

  • practiced a variety of evidence-based teaching strategies to improve learning outcomes for all students through workshops, presentations and group work
  • worked as a team to create teaching materials that implement these strategies
  • begun to shift your focus from content and teaching to outcomes and learning
  • practiced peer evaluation to promote reflective teaching practices

The CSU MoSI is funded by the Provost’s Office; the College of Natural Sciences; the College of Health and Human Sciences; the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences; the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering; and The Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT).

Dates and Times:
May 28 - May 31, 2019 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
