CEILS Annual Faculty Workshop on Best Equitable Practices in Teaching

Faculty Workshop on Best Equitable Practices in Teaching

About the Faculty Workshop

This annual, all-day faculty workshop addresses select topics in science and math education. This workshop is appropriate for everyone—new or veteran teachers—interested in learning more about equitable teaching practices based on education research. We especially encourage instructors who either are relatively new to college teaching or who have instructional responsibilities in large enrollment gateway courses for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) majors.

Topics include effective course design as well as student-centered teaching strategies that incorporate active learning and create equitable and inclusive classroom environments. Many of the instructional techniques focus on facilitating peer learning and other collaborative and group activities designed to support student success in large enrollment classes. 

The format and emphasis of this day-long event has been modified from previous years, so even if you have participated in this workshop before, you might consider attending again and learning something new! Please review this past September 2023 schedule here: September 2023 Agenda
