The Science of Teaching and Learning:
A Science and Math Faculty Forum

June 3, 2011
hosted by
Smith College
Northampton, MA 

While there are both education researchers looking at the teaching of science, and scientists who dabble in education, some presentations by those in education are not helpful to those who do teach science.
This conference will focus on pedagogy more broadly. Speakers and panelists will emphasize what happens in the classroom and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Sessions will explore:


- How teaching in STEM disciplines evolves based on scientific

  findings about how people learn.


- How do they know that these strategies are working.


- What classroom practices lead to an inclusive environment.


- What conversations help get the process started, be through    

   centers for teaching and learning, education departments, or

   among STEM faculty.
