This is the first local discussion group meeting for the online course An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching offered through EdX by the CIRTL Network and starting October 1, 2018. We will meet via Zoom and discuss Week 1 materials.An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching is a massive open online course designed to prepare aspiring faculty in STEM fields to be more effective teachers through an introduction to evidence-based STEM teaching practices. You will learn about effective teaching strategies and the research that supports them. You'll then apply your learning to the design of lessons and assignments for use in your future teaching or job application packages. After completing this course, you will be a more informed and confident teacher, equipped for greater success in the classroom.This eight-week course draws on the expertise of STEM faculty, educational researchers, and staff from university teaching centers, many of them affiliated with the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), a network of nearly 40 research universities collaborating in the preparation of STEM graduate students and postdocs as future faculty members. There are opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, both online and within Cornell, as we also offer local discussion groups around the MOOC activities (contact Colleen McLinn at firstname.lastname@example.org for information).Sign up for Cornell / Ithaca discussion groups: conta.cc/2N7drvq
