Summer Conversations on Teaching for New and Junior Instructors

These casual and fun social lunch meetings provide a space for a group of motivated and innovative educators across STEM disciplines to build a community of practice in teaching. You will explore different strategies for teaching and designing innovative and engaging course assignments. Together, you will build a community of practice that you can stay connected with and explore teaching questions and challenges. This is not didactic, but a conversation to support you learning from each other.
