Collaboratory (Spring 2015)

TLC 1.30.15

Teaching and Learning Collaboratory 

During the spring 2015 semester, we began the STEM Teaching and Learning Collaboratory (TLC).  The STEM TLC is an evidence-based, faculty development program designed to build a community of faculty, TAs, and Learning Specialists, all committed to improving introductory and gateway science courses.    Each workshop included breakout sessions where participants discussed undergraduate education at Duke. This was followed by a large group discussion, led by a panel of a select group of Duke Bass Fellows, who are distinguished researchers dedicated to teaching introductory science classes at Duke, along with experts in science education research. During the meetings, panelists discussed their teaching practices in STEM classes at Duke. For a summary of each meeting’s discussion, please click on the links below.
