    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by Science Alliance

      • Registration Closed

    Do your students doze off during your lectures? Do they have a hard time answering the questions you ask? Do you find yourself wondering if there’s a different way of teaching science to undergraduates than talking to them and showing them slides and illustrations? How can you tell if your students really understand the information or have memorized vocabulary terms? Come to "Scientists Teaching Science" and spend a day exploring active vs. passive learning, creating course objectives and test items, and finding ways to improve your teaching techniques for students in higher education. Information presented in the workshop will also be relevant for writing a required Teaching Statement for faculty positions at colleges and universities.
