First Steps to Exploring Teaching as a Scholarly Practice:
Research in STEM-H Teaching & Learning

How do you know when a teaching practice is working? As STEM-H faculty, we are often not formally trained in the practice and study of teaching. This 4-part series is designed to help practitioners examine their teaching through a scholarly lens, drawing upon educational research techniques.


The workshop series will help you address questions such as:

How do I empower and evaluate my teaching through scholarship?

How might I engage with the educational research community appropriate for my discipline?

What steps can I take to get started?

Join us as we help you break down this complex endeavor. You will leave this 4-part series with a broader perspective of where your interests fit in the educational research landscape and a structure for next-steps planning.

In this series, you will:

  • Learn to identify key features of educational research landscape in STEM-H
  • Develop research questions for your context and receive feedback
  • Gain exposure to conceptual framework development and research design considerations
  • Explore data collection (e.g., survey validity) and quantitative analysis options

Sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning Engineering (CTLE), Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Teacher Development (CRIMSTED), and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning
