MOOC on STEM Undergraduate Teaching
CIRTL Online Course: CIRTL offers a 7-week online course, “An Introduction to Evidence-Based STEM Undergraduate Teaching.” The course is being developed by outstanding CIRTL instructors at partner universities, and is structured like a MOOC (Massively Open Online Course) in that participation is mostly asynchronous. It will provide an excellent introduction to effective teaching strategies and the research that supports them. There is no cost for enrolling in the course. Enrollment for the Fall 2015 course is still pending.
Learning Community at Northwestern: To enhance your learning experience and to create an opportunity for Northwestern participants to discuss the topics introduced in the course, we will also expect you to attend a one-hour discussion with Northwestern participants once per week by videoconference to include both the Chicago and Evanston campuses.
