Leading departmentally-based change initiatives: The Science Education Initiative Handbook

Thursday 2:45pm - 3:30pm Admiral | Poster 2
Poster Presentation

Stephanie Chasteen, University of Colorado at Boulder
Educational change efforts focused at the department level can be particularly powerful. Positive outcomes, however, are not automatic. This poster will share some of the big lessons-learned from the Science Education Initiatives (SEIs) designed by Carl Wieman, in which postdoctoral fellows were embedded directly within disciplinary departments as catalysts of change. Come see our messages for initiative leaders, departmental faculty, and embedded postdocs and instructors, and win a chance for a printed copy of our new free, open-source SEI Handbook, at https://pressbooks.bccampus.ca/seihandbook/.
