Backward design and inclusive pedagogy for teaching science courses
Dr. Nate Emery, Research Associate, Plant Biology, MSU
There is an international movement to transform STEM courses using research-based teaching practices. By teaching innovative inclusive courses that develop students into critical thinkers capable of many different scientific practices, we are preparing a diverse student body for a multitude of different careers.
This workshop will focus on Backward Design and Inclusive pedagogy, which includes brainstorming learning objectives, designing assessments, and building course materials that reflect the goals of a course. All aspects of the workshop are informed by research-based teaching practices and participants will be exposed to a variety of teaching tools, strategies, and resources.
