Tuesday 2/21 4:30pm-6:00pm
Carolina's Great Teacher Tuesdays: High Structure Active Learning: Change the Face(s) of Science Education

Presented by the UNC Program in the Humanities

Featuring Michael Crimmins, Mary Ann Smith Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Executive Director, the Chancellor’s Science Scholars

Active learning can be used to engage all types of students. Nowhere has adopting this practice changed teaching more than in the sciences. Michael Crimmins, winner of the 2016 Board of Governors’ Award for Excellence in Teaching, will discuss the redesign of introductory level science courses at UNC and how the new courses have impacted student performance and student perception of science.

Carolina’s Great Teachers events exemplify the quality of teaching and diversity of research at Carolina. Developed in collaboration with the General Alumni Association, these sessions feature UNC-Chapel Hill faculty discussing their latest scholarship, how they teach it, and how it changes their classrooms. This fall we feature recent teaching award winners. Come find out what’s happening in the University’s most exciting and creative classes.

Carolina’s Great Teachers events take place at Flyleaf Books, 752 MLK Jr. Blvd., in Chapel Hill. All run from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. There are no preparatory readings for Spotlight on Faculty events.
