CAE Teaching Excellence Short-Course on Implementing Evidence-Based Active Learning in the STEM Classroom Using Think-Pair-Share/Peer Instruction

Presented by Edward Prather and Gina Brissenden (Center for Astronomy Education, Steward Observatory, Univ. of Arizona) and Seth Hornstein (Univ. of Colorado Boulder, and is being held in conjunction with the International Astronomical Union (IAU) XXIX General Assembly.

Are you a current or future instructor teaching introductory Astronomy, Space Science, or Physics? Would you like your classroom to intellectually engage your students about the big ideas of your discipline?

We invite you to come learn best teaching practices for using Think-Pair-Share/Peer Instruction to help students increase their conceptual understandings, and critical thinking abilities; and better be able to interpret discipline representations, reason about quantitative data, and appropriately predict and explaining physical outcomes.

Workshop Participants
This short-course, will provide experiences shown to help instructors increase their implementation knowledge and abilities. You’ll also have ample opportunity to put your new knowledge to use during several micro-teaching events in which you will assess and critique many different examples of using Think-Pair-Share/Peer Instruction.

The cost of this workshop is free!
