CEILS Annual Faculty Workshop on Best Equitable Practices in Teaching

September 14, 2022

9:00am – 4:00pm (followed by reception) | Hershey Hall 158

This annual, all-day faculty workshop addresses select topics in science and math education. This workshop is appropriate for everyone—new or veteran teachers—interested in learning more about equitable teaching practices based on education research. We especially encourage instructors who either are relatively new to college teaching or who have instructional responsibilities in large enrollment gateway courses for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) majors.
Topics include effective course design as well as student-centered teaching strategies that incorporate active learning and create equitable and inclusive classroom environments. Many of the instructional techniques focus on facilitating peer learning and other collaborative and group activities designed to support student success in large enrollment classes. 
The format and emphasis of this day-long event has been modified from previous years, so even if you have participated in this workshop before, you might consider attending again and learning something new!
This year we are holding an Education Research Poster Session during Happy Hour at 4 – 5 pm. We would like to invite you to present the innovative work you are doing in your classroom to innovate and create an inclusive classroom. This is a wonderful opportunity for instructors to hear from their colleagues about different strategies being tried out and what has been learned in the process.
