FCI Seminar Series - Student Commitment to STEM Evidence-based Teaching Practices: Results from Evaluation of the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching
In this session, Mark Graham, a research scientist at Yale University’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and director of the STEM Program Evaluation and Research Laboratory (STEM-PERL), will present results from the NSF-sponsored evaluation of the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching. The Summer Institutes were founded in 2004 to improve undergraduate teaching and learning in the STEM disciplines through evidence-based pedagogies, including active learning, formative assessment, and inclusive teaching. Since then, his research team has closely monitored programmatic, faculty, and student outcomes of the Summer Institutes.
In the first hour, Mark Graham will describe the team’s evaluation approach, current themes, and implications for practice. In the interactive session, activities will focus on identifying strategies and resources for supporting student trust, STEM faculty development, department-level change, and institutional support.
