Teaching Students in a STEM Major FLC

There currently exists no formal training program (either required or optional) for early career faculty in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences (CBAS) as it relates to the scholarship of teaching and learning. Early career faculty are often required to begin their academic career as a Lecturer or Assistant Professor with little or no formal training as it relates to best practices for teaching students in a STEM major.

In an effort to address this issue, the STEM faculty learning community will bring together faculty from across the College of Basic and Applied Sciences to develop recommendations for a formal training program for early career STEM faculty looking to be effective an efficient educators. Additionally, MT Engage will be an important component of this FLC, and participating faculty will be encouraged to certify their courses as MT Engage courses.

MEMBERS:

Full-time faculty from across the College of Basic and Applied Sciences are invited to participate in this FLC. In particular, faculty with an interest in the scholarship of teaching and learning are especially encouraged to apply.

FACILITATOR:

Dr. Brian Slaboch, Lecturer, Department of Engineering Technology
