NSF funded research study on active learning


As part of an NSF-funded research study, we are looking for college-level instructors to help us test a survey about faculty use of active learning.

Subject: Active learning survey pilot with drawing for $100 Amazon gift cards

Participation involves completing a short survey: https://tinyurl.com/ASEE-AL.  The survey is 6 questions and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. Participants will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $100 Amazon gift cards.

If you have any questions, please email Maura Borrego at Maura.Borrego@utexas.edu.

Thank you,

Biomedical Engineering Educator Community (BEEC) Virtual Conference

A group of educators from The Ohio State University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell are trying to assess interest and suggestions for a professional development virtual conference and to develop learning communities among teaching-focused faculty in Bioengineering/Biomedical Engineering. We are asking that you fill out a survey to identify topics that would be a priority for this virtual meeting and to help guide future efforts to develop resources and events for this community.
