Scientific Teaching Short Course

Professional Development Support for Your Teaching

Following an unprecedented semester where many educators adopted emergency online teaching methods, we now face a fall term where educators are seeking support to create more effective learning opportunities and inclusive environments for students. Macmillan Learning and the Summer Institutes for Scientific Teaching have partnered to create a modular training program for all educators that will provide training and support for all educators, whether you will be teaching online, in person, or a hybrid of both.


The Scientific Teaching Short Course is a 6-week workshop led by educators and expert facilitators who will provide comprehensive training in the fundamentals of designing student-centered, remote courses that address human needs in our current teaching and learning environment.

Offered three times through fall, this 6-week series will provide participants in the learning community with instructional strategies, networking opportunities, and peer group support.

Each week, educators will participate in a two-hour workshops on key teaching topics, including:

  • Building Community in Online and Remote Courses

  • Fostering Student Engagement and Interaction in the Remote Environment

  • Beyond Techniques: A Phenomenological Approach to Inclusive Teaching

  • Choosing and Using Effective Online Formative Assessments

  • Learning Theories: Applications in Remote Classrooms

  • Constructing Lab and Fieldwork Lessons for Remote Classes
