The STEM Pedagogy faculty learning community in the college of natural sciences, is a collaboration between science instructors across the college with the goal of sharing and discussing evidence-based teaching practices that are clearly connected with the types of teaching and learning that take place in STEM classrooms. The group meets bi-weekly, and meetings include presentations by participating faculty, as well as discussions of peer-reviewed, broadly relevant science education literature.
Upcoming Meeting October 10
You are cordially invited to the next meeting of the STEM Pedagogy faculty learning community in the college of natural sciences. Refreshments will be served. The theme of the meeting will be a reading and discussion on active learning. We will read and discuss an article by Freeman et al. https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1319030111 on the effectiveness of active learning, and continue with group discussion about challenges of implementing/facilitating active learning at CSU Chico. Don't have time to read the article? Come anyway. We would love to have you there!
