End Date: 10/2/2018End Time: 3:00 PM

Event Description
The CASTLE Seminar Kickoff will be with Mark Graham, PhD, Research Scientist and STEM-PERL Director with Yale University.

His talk is titled: Student Commitment to STEM Evidence-based Teaching Practices: Results from Evaluation of the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching.

In this session, Mark Graham, a research scientist at Yale University’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and director of the STEM Program Evaluation and Research Laboratory (STEM-PERL), will present results from the NSF-sponsored evaluation of the Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching. The Summer Institutes were founded in 2004 by scientists Jo Handelsman and William Wood to improve undergraduate teaching and learning in the STEM disciplines through evidence-based pedagogies, including active learning, formative assessment, and inclusive teaching. Since 2011, Mark Graham’s program evaluation research team has closely monitored programmatic, faculty, and student outcomes of the Summer Institutes. He will describe the team’s evaluation approach, current themes, and implications for practice. Activities will focus on identifying strategies and resources for supporting student trust, STEM faculty development, department-level change, and institutional support.

This event is open to all students, faculty, staff and community partners interested in attending. Please forward the invite as needed.

The mission of the Center for the Advancement of STEM Teaching and Learning Excellence (CASTLE) is to employ an interdisciplinary research approach to generate knowledge that will support improved STEM education at all levels — from Kindergarten through Faculty.
