In 2014, the University of Michigan launched an NSF-funded program to reinvent introductory teaching and learning in the core STEM disciplines.  REBUILD (Researching Evidence-Based Undergraduate Instructional and Learning Developments) aimed to promote recruitment, retention, and academic excellence in STEM disciplines by catalyzing the use of evidence-based teaching methods and learning analytics.  Toward this end, REBUILD faculty and postdocs led reform efforts in traditionally lecture-based, high-enrollment courses and labs in Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Math, and Physics.
The  Integrated Teaching and Learning Program (ITL) is nationally recognized as an award-winning engineering education leader, this program supports hands-on engineering learning through an innovative environment where students integrate engineering theory with practice and learn through doing.
The University of Pennsylvania is supporting faculty in making use of Structured, Active, In-class Learning (SAIL) in their teaching. SAIL classes begin with the related premises that students benefit from learning by doing and that class time should be used to help students learn to work with material.
Seeking to raise the level of STEM literacy, the UKanTeach STEM Teacher Preparation Program provided a leverage point to address STEM literacy at multiple levels of formal schooling. Since UKanTeach students are regular undergraduate STEM discipline majors it became very important that CSTEM understand the major learning outcomes as they emerged with their majors.
UKanTeach supports effective STEM learning, effective communication about STEM, supports service learning, while exploring secondary mathematics and science teaching as an option at graduation. If you wish to be a better science communicator or teach secondary (grades 6-12) math or science, then UKanTeach can help.
IMPACT is Purdue effort that aims to provide faculty development and support to redesign courses to be more student-centered, including the articulation of learning objectives, appropriate design of course assessments, and the effective use of instructional technologies and engaged pedagogies.
The conference on Transforming Institutions: 21st Century Undergraduate STEM Education brings together change leaders from academia, government, and industry to explore research-based practices, strategies and challenges for institutional transformation, especially as related to STEM education.
The Curriculum Innovation Fund is Princeton University's principal resource for supporting innovation in the undergraduate curriculum. With the endorsement of their department or program, faculty members may submit proposals for new or reimagined courses in any subject at any level.
The McGraw Teaching Seminar is a year-long opportunity for Princeton graduate student and faculty participants to engage collaboratively with current research on a range of issues in teaching and learning in higher education.
