The Summer Institute (SI) is part of a national effort to improve college education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and to enhance the academic success of all students by helping current and future faculty develop and adopt inclusive and effective teaching practices. The SI is a nationally recognized, prestigious teaching development program that has trained more than 1,000 faculty in evidence-based instruction over the last decade, including more than 100 STEM faculty at UCLA, some of whom will come back this year to serve as facilitators of this esteemed 4-day institute.
If you would like to participate, please apply here. We will work with Department Chairs and Deans to select the cohort of 35 instructors and will notify you as soon as a decision is made (no later than May 1, 2020) so you can plan your summer accordingly.
