Teaching Discovery Days 

The College of Natural Sciences has held an annual Teaching Discovery Day since 2016 to showcase teaching excellence college-wide and encourage discussion among participants about best practices and new ideas in science education and learning.

Participants visit a class, participate in a round-table discussion and attend a celebratory outdoor reception. 

In-class observations, teaching discussions and showcases in years past have covered topics such as:

  • integrating research on teaching and learning
  • effective use of technology in teaching
  • engaging TAs, UGTAs, and learning assistants
  • building supportive communities
  • student-centered strategies

Faculty invitations to register are sent via email in October. You may also register directly at the website when the website registration opens.
