New for 2017! Developmental Science Teaching Institute Travel Awards

The SRCD Teaching Committee is pleased to announce that a limited number of travel awards are available to support SRCD members who would like to attend the 2017 Developmental Science Teaching Institute that is scheduled for Wednesday, April 5th in Austin, Texas from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM CST.

The $500 award will help offset the registration and accommodation expenses involved in attending the SRCD Developmental Science Teaching Institute pre-conference. We are interested in supporting a diverse group of teachers who would otherwise be unable to attend the Teaching Institute, and encourage all SRCD members who are faculty at any career stage from both 2-and 4-year colleges to apply.

The deadline for applications was Monday, December 5th, 11:59 PM EST.

The SRCD Developmental Science Teaching Institute is designed for teachers of developmental courses at all levels who wish to develop strategies for engaging students, to explore new ideas, to update their knowledge base, and to share ideas and perspectives with like-minded professionals.

To accomplish these goals and encompass broad areas of interest for beginning to advanced teachers of developmental science, the Institute provides a plenary session, a variety of breakout sessions, a poster session, and opportunities for interaction in order to share ideas among participants. The diverse presentation formats allow occasions for informal exchange and enable participants to select an agenda that meets their professional development needs.

The current chair of the Teaching Institute Program is Tara Kuther at kuthert@wscu.edu
