"Catalyzing Change in STEM Faculty Pedagogical Practice" Workshop

Please join us for the second HHMI Collaborative Project workshop on “Catalyzing Change in STEM Faculty Pedagogical Practice” in Miami on February 1st & 2nd, 2018!

Please register to the workshop by filling out the information below. The collaborative workshop is open to faculty and administrators from institutions with HHMI Science Education grants (no registration fee will be charged). Opportunities for limited travel support will be provided, with funds distributed as available. To be considered for travel support opportunities, please fill out the RSVP registration form by December 8th, 2017.

About the Meeting:
The purpose of the collaborative workshop is to highlight the work of the collaborative research teams that were formed after our inaugural 2016 workshop. These research teams will share preliminary results of their analysis of the large-scale survey of faculty practices. Additionally, the workshop will continue to promote communication and collaboration between HHMI programs. These discussions will lead to a deeper and unique understanding of change at HHMI funded institutions, as well as build strategic partnerships between programs.

In a collaboration with 5 HHMI science education programs, we conducted a large-scale survey study of STEM faculty in over 30 institutions with HHMI Science Education grants and 41 matched Research Universities without the HHMI Science Education funding. The purpose of the survey is to increase our understanding of STEM instructional practices and faculty support structures at institutions, to identify promising practices and barriers to change. During the collaborative meeting, we will discuss the preliminary survey results, identify promising change practices, and build networks across HHMI programs.  

This meeting will be data-driven and we will use the results from survey analysis to lead the meeting discussions. We aim for the workshop to initiate continued research and scholarship.
