HHMI Workshop


Join us for the second HHMI Collaborative Project workshop on “Catalyzing Change in STEM Faculty Pedagogical Practice” in Miami on February 1st & 2nd, 2018! The workshop is open to faculty and administrators from institutions with HHMI Science Education grants (no registration fee will be charged). RSVP here: https:/www.surveymonkey.comr/PRBH66J

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. These discussions will lead to a deeper and unique understanding of change at HHMI funded institutions, as well as build strategic partnerships between programs. 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 Survey: 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.

Session and workshop topics will include: Factors that influence faculty change towards evidence-based practices Landscape instructional practices in STEM disciplines Institutional support structures to incentivizing faculty use of evidence-base strategies Formation of synergistic networks across HHMI institutions Models at HHMI institutions

We look forward to seeing you and your colleagues in Miami on February!
