NIST Summer 2021:

Solve My Problem

This summer, the National Institute on Scientific Teaching will host a self-directed and collaborative Solve My Problem event.  Our goal is to support the community in addressing common challenges concerning inclusivity, active learning, and assessment that span our disciplines and institutions.

In preparation for this event, we invited the NIST community to submit problems that you would like to work on this summer with a small group. An opening workshop will be held on June 22. Small groups will meet regularly online over the course of 4 weeks to focus on specific problems and develop strategies that participants can use in their courses. Groups will be self-directed.  A NIST-provided coordinator will be available to help as needed. Solve My Problem will conclude on July 20 with a wrap-up workshop, where participants will share strategies and materials that they developed.

 

 

 

 

Registration Deadline: June 15, 2021

 

Opening Workshop: June 22, 9 am HI/ 11 am AK/ 12 pm P/ 1 pm M / 2 pm C / 3 pm E (expected length: 90 minutes)
