October 16-18, 2022 | Virtual Workshop

The application deadline for this workshop has passed.

This 3-day workshop will bring together educators teaching quantitative thinking and computational skills who are interested in strengthening their courses, teaching materials, and student uptake with programming, with a particular focus on transitioning courses to partially or fully online.

Working with educator peers and MATLAB experts, workshop participants will develop MATLAB related curriculum while sharing strategies, tools, and challenges teaching computational courses in both in-person and virtual settings. Topics may include:

  • Centralized browser-based MATLAB Online software for teaching and learning
  • Strategies for flipping classrooms and videoing lectures
  • Automated grading of coding assignments with MATLAB Grader
  • And more

Session formats will include presentations of proven teaching modules and approaches, panel discussions led by peer leaders, and working groups within and across disciplines. Hundreds of educators have participated in the MATLAB Educator Workshops. Educators will return to their in-person and online classrooms, departments, and institutions armed with new skills, ideas to implement, and improved course offerings.

As preparation for the workshop, all participants will be required to contribute to a collection of online teaching activities. A team of faculty colleagues will review these publicly available materials, making them citable by you and your colleagues.
