Regional & Online Summer Institutes

Overview

 

The Regional and Online Summer Institutes are intensive multi-day workshops held throughout the United States that introduce STEM educators to the principles of evidence-based teaching. Participants include college and university faculty and future faculty in STEM fields from both research- and teaching-intensive institutions. Each year, approximately 200 participants attend one of up to six “regional” Summer Institutes, which draw faculty teams from institutions in a proximal geographic region. 

 

A Note for IRACDA Applicants

Institutional Research and Academic Career Development Awards (IRACDA) Postdoctoral Scholars are given priority status to attend a Regional Summer Institute. The Summer Institutes are an excellent opportunity for IRACDA postdocs to develop their teaching skills and prepare to join the next generation of biomedical educators. For more information, please contact nationalinstitutesonST@gmail.com.
