GRAD 511 Foundations in Evidence-Based STEM Pedagogy 3.0 Credits

A graduate level introduction to evidence-based approaches to teaching STEM undergraduates. Evidence-based pedagogies have been demonstrated to be successful in promoting student learning and success. Students in this course will discuss, research, and practice a number of evidence-based pedagogical approaches and think about implementation strategies for the classroom. Through classroom activities we will engage with a survey of evidence-based teaching approaches so that students can make informed implementation decisions after the course is over. There will be an emphasis on understanding why changes to STEM teaching are important for promoting retention and diversity in STEM fields.
