Outcomes 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4What facilitates learning? How can assessment be used to drive student learning? How can we create equitable, inclusive classrooms? These are just a few of the big questions we grappled with during our time at the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching. A large body of research is shaping our understanding of how people learn, and informing faculty development programs like the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching. These institutes focus on bringing the critical thinking, rigor, creativity, and spirit of research and experimentation to teaching, through the themes of inclusive teaching, active learning, and assessment/alignment. While the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching tailor training to STEM faculty, students and faculty in all disciplines can benefit from the incorporation of these themes in their classrooms. In this conversation, we will discuss and share some of the active learning and assessment techniques from the Summer Institutes that can be applied to a variety of disciplines and settings, and that can create more inclusive environments for the broad array of students we strive to reach.
