CIRTL MOOC: Advancing Learning through Evidence-Based STEM Teaching


This course will provide graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in the STEM disciplines with an introduction to “teaching as research”—the deliberate, systematic, and reflective use of research methods to develop and implement teaching practices that advance the learning experiences and outcomes of both students and teachers. Participants will learn about effective teaching strategies and the research that supports them, and they will learn how to collect, analyze, and act upon their own evidence of student learning. In addition to the online course, many CIRTL universities will be hosting in-person, MOOC-centered learning communities; contact your local CIRTL office to learn more about on-campus activities.
