Learn the Fundamental Concepts of Evidence-Based Teaching

This 6-webinar, on-demand series introduces fundamental concepts of evidence-based teaching that you can readily apply in the classroom or lab, as well as essential career development tips for undergraduate educators. Here, participants will develop the capacity for science teaching careers for positions at a variety of non-doctoral institutions – community colleges, minority-serving institutions, regional or state colleges and primarily undergraduate institutions. The content of each webinar builds upon content learned in previous webinars of the series. Learn from award-winning leaders in undergraduate biology education. The series is based on ASM’s Science Teaching Fellows Program (2012-2017), which prepared over 270 early-career scientists for teaching-related careers at non-doctoral colleges and universities.
