About this Event:
During the 20-21 academic year, eight PhD students and one postdoc worked with individual faculty mentors to do projects on learning and teaching.

“Teaching as Research” encourages students to investigate teaching using some of the same principles they would use in their disciplinary research. This is a great opportunity to explore questions being asked about student learning at Northwestern.

Please join us to hear about these projects on Tuesday, June 15 from 9 to 10:30 AM, and Wednesday, June 16 from 3:30 to 5 PM.

The STAR program is part of CIRTL at Northwestern.
