What is the Teaching Institute?
The SRCD Developmental Science Teaching Institute is designed for teachers of developmental science courses at all levels who wish to develop strategies for engaging students, explore new ideas, update their knowledge base, and share perspectives with like-minded professionals. Encompassing topics that are relevant to beginning and advanced teachers of developmental science alike, the Institute provides sessions of general interest on cutting-edge teaching practices, a variety of breakout sessions, a poster session, and opportunities for interaction in order to share ideas among participants.

The Institute’s diverse presentation formats allow for informal exchange and enable participants to select an agenda that meets their professional development needs. This is an all-day experience that takes place the day before the SRCD Biennial Meeting. Teaching Institute Travel Awards will be available on a limited basis. Graduate students, early career faculty, those who will be presenting at the Teaching Institute, and those who receive limited support from their home institutions will receive priority consideration.

What types of submissions are we looking for?
While we encourage submissions that address teaching and learning broadly in the developmental sciences, this year we are particularly interested in submissions related to teaching diversity, inclusion, and equity. Submissions that promise to advance our abilities to reach and meet the needs of all students and to facilitate productive classroom dialogues on issues of equity, inclusion, and other social justice issues are particularly welcome. Also welcome are submissions addressing universal course design that enable courses to be inclusive of all students and minimizes barriers to learning and the need for special accommodations. Submissions that involve evidence-based practice are preferred. Submissions may be geared towards teachers at any level of experience, from novice to experienced instructors, and at any type of institution (e.g., high schools, community colleges, liberal arts colleges, research institutions).
