Teaching Discovery Days 

The College of Natural Sciences has held an annual Teaching Discovery Day since 2016 to showcase teaching excellence college-wide and encourage discussion among participants about best practices and new ideas in science education and learning.

The 2021 theme, Building a New Normal, merged virtual and face-to-face activities. Participants engaged in in-class observations, a poster session, teaching discussions and showcases, and closed out the day together with an outdoor reception.

Topics covered included:

  • integrating research on teaching and learning
  • effective use of technology in teaching
  • engaging TAs, UGTAs, and learning assistants
  • building supportive communities
  • student-centered strategies

We look forward to celebrating teaching in 2022.
