Evidence-based teaching strategies that foster inclusion, promote active learning, and enable assessment are highly applicable beyond classrooms and are relevant in most professional settings, including every career type in the sciences. In this interactive workshop, participants will engage in a series of small group conversations with multiple scientific professionals pursuing a variety of science careers. Together, panelists and participants will discuss how evidence-based teaching strategies can be applied in common professional settings across career types, including scientific presentations, team meetings, and job talks. Finally, participants will identify ways in which they can immediately implement simple evidence-based teaching strategies in their own professional settings and for their own career development.

Co-sponsored by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA), the Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education (VPGE), and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).
