The Scientists as Educators program is a series of one-hour workshops for scientists, researchers, post-docs and graduate students who want to know learn more about key aspects of teaching and learning. 

Each session has a brief online component (video and application activity) followed by a 1-hour in-person session to dig deeper and apply concepts.  In-person sessions are held from 12-1pm on the fourth Monday of each month.   If participants are unable to attend the in-person session, an alternative consultation can also be arranged. 

Participants are welcome to attend all sessions, or select only those that they would like to learn more about.
