Active Learning, Inquiry Teaching Certificate

Engineering : 102
In this kick-off event for the fifth year of the certificate program in Active Learning, Inquiry Teaching (ALIT), we’ll discuss strategies to help ALL students become more expert-like in their thinking and learning. Reaching all students often requires us to rethink our teaching approaches to be more inclusive. During the kickoff, participants will discuss key ideas in this new resource for Inclusive Teaching in STEM. Please read the article in advance and come prepared to share your best ideas for practice. The certificate program is designed to support faculty in adopting research-based teaching practices that foster the retention of students in STEM majors and support the development of their students as STEM professionals. The program is open to all instructional faculty who teach courses in the Colleges of Natural and Mathematical Sciences or Engineering and Information Technology and is funded by the Colleges and the FDC. All faculty participating in the certificate program are encouraged to attend the kickoff.

This event is for participants who have applied and been accepted to participate in the Active Learning, Inquiry Teaching (ALIT) Certificate program.  Both those in the first or second year of the program are expected to attend.
