Faculty, Postdocs, & Grad Students: Teaching College Science
A short luncheon seminar series with Dr. Linda Hodges
Teaching College Science
January 6, 13, and 20, 12:00-1:30 p.m.
The Commons, Room 318
In this short course for faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students, we discuss short articles on effective ways to teach science given what the research says about how students learn. During the sessions we will think about ways that students learn science, generate questions about how teaching can promote student learning, and discuss resources to help promote student learning. Participants are asked to read short on-line articles before each session and are encouraged to attend all three sessions if possible. Lunch will be provided.
Instructor/Facilitator: Dr. Linda Hodges, Director of the UMBC Faculty Development Center. Dr. Hodges came to UMBC in August 2010 from Princeton University.
