Teaching Computation Online with MATLAB Workshop is Going Virtual!
The sixth annual Teaching Computation with MATLAB workshop is moving online! Ensure your spot: apply to participate in the virtual workshop by July 31.
At this October 11-13 faculty-led virtual workshop, educators in Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Geoscience, Math, Physics, and allied fields will develop MATLAB related curriculum while sharing strategies, tools, and challenges teaching computational courses in in-person and online settings.
If you're teaching a STEM course, you've likely seen big changes in expectations over the last few years--more online learning, more programming, more math, and more hardware, with individual courses that must include all the above. And with recent moves to virtual learning, courses must work in an online format. With the recognition that COVID-19 upheaval presents many new challenges, two clear emerging requirements are the need for teaching computation and flexible, remote methodologies.
What will happen at the online workshop?
Participating in the online workshop will provide opportunities to interact with and learn from peers in unique ways. As part of the 2020 virtual workshop, you'll be able to:
- Develop curriculum: Upgrade your curriculum with a focus on transitioning to online learning
- Interact with peer mentors: Meet in 1-on-1 coaching sessions with faculty, education professionals, and MATLAB experts
- Publish and cite: Get your teaching activities peer reviewed and citable for inclusion in your CV
- Learn: Learn how to embed new MATLAB tools in courses to improve student learning
- Get involved: Collaborate with and build connections to a network of educator peers all working on impactful computational skill development in their courses
As a fully online event there is no financial commitment for the workshop. Apply today to ensure your spot as space is limited. To create an engaging online workshop environment, attendance may be capped. Applications are non-binding, and you will be asked to register to confirm your participation.
