What is UCLA’s Summer Institute on Scientific Teaching?
The Summer Institute (SI) is part of a national effort to improve college education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and to enhance the academic success of all students by helping current and future faculty develop and adopt inclusive and effective teaching practices. The SI is a nationally recognized, prestigious teaching development program that has trained more than 1,000 faculty in evidence-based instruction over the last decade, including over 100 UCLA science faculty, some of whom will serve as facilitators and mentors of this esteemed 4-day professional development opportunity this summer at UCLA.
Who should attend the SI@UCLA?
We invite UCLA faculty and instructors from all departments and interdisciplinary programs in the Life and Physical Sciences as well as Engineering and Computer Science to apply.
Postdoctoral teaching fellows such as those in UPLIFT and the Chemistry/Biochemistry Teaching Scholars programs are encouraged to apply. We also invite graduate student Teaching Assistant Consultants (TACs) for UCLA’s 495 TA training courses to apply.
In addition, we welcome applications from institutional members of the Southern California Regional Collaborative, a regional network of 2-year and 4-year colleges and universities united in their efforts to improve STEM education outcomes. Please check out our partners list to see if your institution is a member.
