Advancing Learning Through Evidence-Based STEM Teaching

About this course

At the core of improving teaching and learning is the
need to accurately determine what students have learned as a result of
teaching practices. This is a research problem, to which STEM
instructors can effectively apply their research skills and knowledge.

In this course, you will learn about the “teaching as research”
framework. This framework is a deliberate, systematic, and reflective
use of research methods used to develop and implement teaching practices
that advance the learning experiences and outcomes of both students and
teachers.

Participants will learn about effective teaching strategies and the
research that supports them, as well as how to collect and analyze
evidence of student learning.

This course is targeted to graduate students and post-doctoral
fellows within STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics) that are seeking faculty careers at college and university.

The “Teaching as Research” framework is a core idea of The Center for
the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), which is a
National Science Foundation (NSF) funded network of research
universities committed to preparing outstanding future faculty in STEM
disciplines, with the ultimate goal of improving undergraduate STEM
education in the U.S.
