New MOOC: An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching
Updated by Janaina on September 2, 10:30am
Launching on October 6, 2014, this free 7-week Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) will provide future and current STEM faculty with an introduction to evidence-based STEM teaching practices.Participants will learn abouteffective teaching strategies and the research that supports them.
The MOOC is also designed to support local learning communities of participants who want toengage more deeply with the MOOC learning materials in a collaborative environment atUW-Madison. The MOOC-Supported Learning Communities (MSLC) will meet weekly with a facilitatorto discuss and go deeper with the materials provided by the MOOC. The MSLC is an excellent opportunity to build community with other STEM graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and staff interested in effective teaching and learning practices at UW-Madison while simultaneously engaging with the content of the MOOC. For graduate students in particular, completion of the MOOC and participation in the MSLC together may be counted as a Delta course towards the Internship or Certificate Program.
