The Scientific Teaching in Practice Webinar Series extends the learning and dialogue that occurs at the Summer Institutes (SI) on Scientific Teaching into a year-round community that supports and inspires evidence-based teaching. Each month, the SI community is invited to attend an interactive webinar related to the practice and/or dissemination of scientific teaching. The webinar will be facilitated by someone experienced in that area, integrating significant time for questions and open discussion. Webinars are open to SI alums as well as those generally interested in scientific teaching and evidence-based teaching strategies.

After implementing scientific teaching principles, how do instructors know whether their approaches are working? During this webinar, Jenny Knight, Associate Professor of Biology-MCD Instruction at the University of Colorado Boulder, will lead a discussion on how instructors can evaluate the impacts of their scientific teaching efforts. Jenny is the author of many publications on measuring student understanding. Her work focuses on clicker discussions, concept tests and other assessments in the undergraduate science classroom.
