STEM Education Research Journal Club

Abstract

The ATL supports instructor use of evidence-based practices and aims to broaden knowledge, understanding, and engagement with these practices, particularly among STEM faculty. This FIG will explore publications related to both scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and discipline-based education research (DBER) to generate discussion and build a community of support for enacting new teaching methods. We will read and discuss recent publications and book chapters on evidence-based practices specifically applied to STEM courses, including active learning, assessment, writing to learn, etc.
