Upcoming Events

CSM Faculty Lounge

Our next CSM Faculty Lounge will be held this Friday, February 6th
Dr. Mara Brady (Earth & Environmental Science) 
“Thinking about Learning and Teaching as a Researcher Would” 
CSM Faculty Lounge Discussion 

To motivate for the discussion, please read Chapter 1 from the National Research Council's recent publication,  Reaching Students: What Research Says about Effective Instruction in Undergraduate Science and Engineering (2015), attached to this email for your convenience . You can download the entire book and individual chapters here ( http://www.nap.edu/catalog/18687/reaching-students-what-research-says-about-effective-instruction-in-undergraduate ) .


Note: The chapter includes a few case studies under the heading "Designing Learning." While all are relevant and interesting, feel free to focus your reading efforts on just one of these, while getting a general background from the rest of the text.


**Bonus: Reflect on what you've read and experience one of the learning tools mentioned in the text. Use this form to submit a Reading Reflection before we meet on Friday (http://goo.gl/forms/JF8znxPtY6 ). 

We hope you will plan to attend. 

Coffee will be served! 

This event is sponsored by the CSM WIDER Grant
