TIGER Workshop Series 1.Learning Goals: a.Continue Informing CU-Boulder audience of our participation in the national CIRTL Network. b.Inform CU-Boulder audience about the CIRTL Café. c.Disseminate CIRTL Pillars to a broad audience at CU-Boulder. d.Showcase CU-Boulder STEM faculty in teaching and learning workshops. CU-Boulder TIGER/CIRTL 2.Evaluation Strategies and Timelines (Fall 2008–Spring 2011): a.Workshop feedback forms: evaluate presenter/workshop/personal learning application b.Numbers of participants c.Numbers of STEM departments represented by participants 3.Evaluation Issues Arisen, Anticipated? a.None b.The collection of data gives us a good picture of our broad campus impact.
Analysis of Existing STEM Pedagogy Courses 1.Learning Goals: a.Create a campus-wide snapshot of existing STEM pedagogy courses. b.Determine the content of existing STEM pedagogy courses. c.Create a model STEM pedagogy course template which integrates the CIRTL pillars that can be used to promote the creation of new STEM pedagogy courses. CU-Boulder TIGER/CIRTL 2.Evaluation Strategies and Timelines: a.Determine (non)existence/number of courses: Fall 2008. b.Collect syllabi from existing courses: Fall 2008. c.Compare and contrast topics covered in existing courses: Spring 2009. d.Create model syllabus that integrates CIRTL pillars: Summer 2009 3.Evaluation Issues Arisen, Anticipated? a.None b.The analysis of departmental courses gives us a birds eye view of the depth/breadth/lack of STEM departments focus on teaching in the discipline. c.The creation of a model course syllabus will allow us to communicate more effectively with those STEM departments that lack a focus on teaching and learning issues.
Award Pedagogy Course Development Grants to STEM Departments 1.Learning Goals: a.To learn how to work with departments to assist in developing pedagogy courses. b.To create a pedagogy course that truly integrates the CIRTL pillars. c.To be able to create, implement, and study the new course. d.To integrate our CU-Boulder faculty in the DBER group with the CIRTL project as providers of feedback/consultation. e.To be able to reiterate and share the newly developed course with the CIRTL Network. CU-Boulder TIGER/CIRTL 2.Evaluation Strategies and Timelines: a.Identify department and staff: Fall 2008 b.Introduce participants to CIRTL Pillars, CIRTL Café and to the DBER group: Spring 2009. c.Create, implement, and study course: Summer 2009-Spring 2010. 3.Evaluation Issues Arisen, Anticipated? a.Must create addendum to the IRB to cover the course project research. b.Must collaborate with department to meet needs and expectations.
