SEPAL Scientific Teaching Institute

Registration to be determined…

Instructors from all institution types, science disciplines, and career stages are most welcome!

Goals for the institute are to…

*build community among bay area biology and other science instructors

*explore the core tenets of scientific teaching – assessment, inclusion, active learning, and effective and efficient lesson planning

*initiate rich discussions about engaging all our students in meaningful science learning

*collaboratively prepare for your professional activities
