Faculty Teaching Institute

Dates: Monday June 2 - Wednesday June 4
Cost: $250 (Scholarships available from the College of Arts and Sciences, the Dept. of Engineering, and elsewhere.)

Stony Brook is hosting a three day Teaching Institute in "Process Education" led by Dan Apple on June 2, 3, and 4. It will include cooperative learning techniques for lecture and recitation, developing critical thinking questions, and developing problem solving skills. Key components include assessment of students, the learning process, and the development of students' self assessment skills.

The Institute is open to all teaching faculty and staff of the University and surrounding institutions, but is limited to 30 participants. First preference will be given to those who can commit for the 3 full days. Anyone in the School of Engineering or the College of Arts and Sciences will have their way paid by their respective deans. Scholarships may be available from other departments, the Long Island Consortium for Interconnected Learning, or the SUNY Alliance for Minority Participation. If you are interested in attending, please register as soon as possible so that we can attempt to get you funding.
