This event is hosted by Harvard Medical School in collaboration with Boston area universities and provides a chance for students and postdoctoral fellows to present their research, exchange ideas about career development and expand their professional network. Participation by trainees from groups that are under-represented in science is encouraged.
National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science
Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching
Regional Sites Available, Dates TBA
In these workshops, participants learn practical strategies for enhancing student learning using principles of active learning, assessment, and inclusive teaching. Activities include reflective writing, planning, reading, researching, discussing teaching methods and philosophy, interactive presentations, and developing teaching materials. By the end of an institute, participants will have observed, evaluated, and collected a portfolio of innovative teaching approaches and instructional materials that are ready to be adopted and adapted to their own science teaching environments.
This meeting brings together IRADCA programs to share information related to enhancing teaching partnerships, mentoring undergraduates, curriculum, and professional development activities and workshops that will help postdocs broaden their skill set, as they work toward their career goals.
