Call for NIST Summer 2021: Solve My Problem
In Summer 2021, the National Institute on Scientific Teaching will host a self-directed and collaborative Solve My Problem event. Our goal is to support the community in addressing common challenges concerning inclusivity, active learning, and assessment that span our disciplines and institutions.
For this event, we invite the NIST community to submit problems that you would like to work on this summer with a small group. An opening workshop will be held on June 22. Small groups will meet regularly online with a facilitator over the course of 4 weeks to focus on specific problems and develop strategies that participants can use in their courses. Solve My Problem will conclude on July 20 with a wrap-up workshop sharing strategies that have emerged.
You do not need to submit a problem in order to participate.
