This interactive workshop on teaching strategies that can help promote student success, regardless of their gender. The discussion will revolve around studies that education researchers have shown to be effective in narrowing gender gaps in student achievement, paying particular attention to a study involving Princeton University Engineering students. We will discuss ways that Princeton Physicists can easily incorporate these methods into their classrooms without sacrificing course content or producing much extra work for the instructor. This will provide a low-barrier way to integrate physics education research results into your classroom to promote enhanced student learning.
The workshop is hosted by the Department of Physics' EDI Initiative and The McGraw Center for Teaching & Learning. It is open to faculty, postdocs, and graduate students with the intention for it to be helpful for people currently teaching and those who will be teaching in the near future.
Sponsored funding is being provided by the Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM).
