Description:

The Transforming STEM Teaching Faculty Learning Program is a blended professional learning program offered at Berkeley for all STEM senate and non-senate faculty and is designed to improve university STEM faculty’s instructional practice. The program nurtures an interdisciplinary learning community, provides continuous support, and is situated within faculty’s everyday work. As faculty redefine their role in the undergraduate lecture, students’ learning gains and experiences in these courses will be affected positively. The program has the following objectives:

(1)   Faculty will develop their STEM education expertise, which includes understanding how learning happens and skills to facilitate student discussion and reflection in the large, undergraduate STEM lecture courses.

(2)   Faculty will gain experience in using online technologies to develop their own instructional practice and to support student learning in their lecture courses.

(3)   Faculty will re-design their STEM lectures to apply what they learn, and integrate new approaches to their teaching practice.
