Event Information

Mobile Summer Institute on Scientific Teaching at Colorado State University
Workshops and Presentations on Undergraduate STEM Education

Please consider taking part in the Mobile Summer Institute on Undergraduate STEM Education (MoSI). The MoSI is a new iteration of the renowned National Academies Summer Institute (NASI) founded at the University of Wisconsin-Madison by Jo Handelsman (Yale) and Bill Wood (UC-Boulder, Emeritus). This is an intensive workshop on undergraduate science technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. NASI was developed in response to the National Research Council report, Bio2010, which called for a transformation of science education by improving classroom teaching and attracting diverse students to science.

By the end of the institute, you will have:

  • practiced a variety of evidence-based teaching strategies to improve learning outcomes for all students through workshops, presentations and group work
  • worked as a team to create teaching materials that implement these strategies
  • begun to shift your focus from content and teaching to outcomes and learning
  • practiced peer evaluation to promote reflective teaching practices

The CSU MoSI is funded by the Provost’s Office; the College of Natural Sciences; the College of Health and Human Sciences; the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences; the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering; and The Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT).

Dates and Times:
May 28 - May 31, 2019 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
