This summer, the National Institute on Scientific Teaching will host Addressing Challenges in Teaching (ACT), the third annual flexible, small group learning event in the Solve My Problem (SMP) series. Our goal is to work as a community to address common challenges in undergraduate education. We welcome educators at all stages of their academic career to join us for this opportunity to explore, reflect upon, learn, and deepen our teaching practices.
ACT begins on July 6 at 9am HI/ 11am AK/ 12pm P/ 1pm M / 2pm C / 3pm E with an opening 90 minute workshop, serving as an introduction to Scientific Teaching for those newer to the framework and a refresher for those more familiar with it. Participants will be organized into small groups supported by an experienced coordinator and will plan to meet online 5-6 times over 3 weeks to explore a relevant teaching challenge that is aligned to one of the three pillars of the Scientific Teaching Framework (Active Learning, Inclusivity, Assessment). ACT will conclude on July 27 with a wrap-up workshop where participants will share strategies and materials that they developed.
