In this kick-off event for the fourth year of the certificate program in Active Learning, Inquiry Teaching (ALIT) we’ll discuss strategies to help students become more expert-like in their thinking and learning. Participating faculty will share from their experiences and research in this area. The certificate program is designed to support faculty in adopting research-based teaching practices that foster the retention of students in STEM majors and support the development of their students as STEM professionals. The program is open to all instructional faculty who teach courses in the Colleges of Natural and Mathematical Sciences or Engineering and Information Technology and is funded by the Colleges, the FDC, and the NIH-funded STEM BUILD at UMBC initiative. This event is for participants who have applied and been accepted to participate in the Active Learning, Inquiry Teaching (ALIT) Certificate program. All faculty participating in the certificate program are encouraged to attend the kickoff.
