The Inclusive STEM Teaching Project, a NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education program, is hosting the free six-week Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) from October 3 – November 22, 2022 via edX.
The Inclusive STEM Teaching Project community has now grown to over 6,000 faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and staff, and we hope to see that growth continue.
By participating in this course, participants will learn how to:
- Advance awareness, self-efficacy, and ability to cultivate inclusive classroom environments;
- Support development as a reflective, inclusive practitioner;
- Engage in reflection and discussion around topics of equity and inclusion across a variety of institutional contexts;
- Implement inclusive teaching methods in classes which will remove common barriers and enhance learning in STEM for all students.
Here is the registration link for our fall session, as well as our course flyer and 1-pager.
The Carleton College Chemistry Department is conducting a search for a tenure-track position. The search is open to all fields of chemistry.
The job ad is here. We are looking for someone who is passionate about both teaching and research with undergraduate students. We welcome applicants who have postdoctoral experience as well as those who haven’t yet acquired it.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks so much for taking the time to forward this information around.
Professor and Chair of Chemistry
I am a Professor in the Department of Horticulture (College of Agricultural Sciences) here at OSU. My research focuses on honey bee health. We are in the process of designing a research study to understand the properties (crystallization etc.) and fate of oxalic acid dehydrate when it is vaporized inside honey bee hives for controlling a parasite called Varroa mite. I am looking for a faculty in your department that we could collaborate with on this study. Could you please let me know if you or any other faculty would be able to assist us. I will be happy to provide you more details about this study either over the phone or in person.
Appreciate your help.
