  • Janice Cutler Symposium on Undergraduate Science Education

    Friday, March 1, 2013 | 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Center for Teaching Excellence at New York University

      • Registration Closed

    This symposium features panel presentations by three distinguished science educators—representing the disciplines of chemistry, biology, and physics—who will share their experiences and insights about undergraduate science education. Drawing on general educational principles and discipline-specific themes, the presentations will highlight research-based innovations in curriculum design, pedagogy, and assessment that enable students to learn science more effectively. These methods include active learning, scientific teaching, and a focus on student learning outcomes. Following the presentations, participants will engage in a roundtable workshop session with the goal of implementing a teaching innovation within their own science courses and assessing its impact on student learning. The symposium will provide faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students in a range of disciplines with the knowledge and skills to improve teaching and learning in undergraduate science courses.

    *Reception to follow.
