Our mission to advance learning and teaching at Northwestern requires a continued campus-wide commitment from our world-class faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates.
We invite all to join the Searle Center community to help maintain high-quality education at Northwestern University.
Our programs encourage early-career and advanced faculty to think critically about pedagogy and their role as educators. We create opportunities for faculty to connect with and learn from peers across the university.
Grads & Postdocs
We invite new and advanced graduate students and postdocs to meet, discuss, and learn together to improve their teaching skills.
Book of the Quarter
Written by two cognitive scientists and a storyteller, Make it Stick explains how learning works in a readable, engaging format. The authors contend that most of us take approaches to learning that intuitively seem useful but are actually ineffective – and then provide alternative, research-based approaches that work. An important resource for learners and teachers alike.
