Have you been trying to enact changes in your courses, centers, or departments? Perhaps you feel as though you have been working alone, and really want to collaborate with others who have similar pedagogical goals. This program provides the opportunity to work with a small group of engaged science faculty to develop strategies for addressing a teaching challenge.
We invite you to participate in the second year of Solve My Problem (https://www.nisthub.org/solve-my-problem). When you register for this collaborative program from the National Institute on Scientific Teaching, you will select from a list of ideas. Groups will be formed based on individual interests in similar topics, and be supported by a coordinator to plan their problem-solving approach. Topics include but are not limited to: improving lab courses, orchestrating effective group work, and encouraging critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Following an opening workshop on June 21, small groups will meet regularly online over the course of 4 weeks to focus on specific problems and develop solutions that you can use in your courses. Solve My Problem will conclude on July 19 with a closing workshop, where participants will share tips, tools, and strategies developed during the workshop.
Registration deadline: June 14
