Come explore evidence-based models of instruction for the undergraduate classroom.

An introductory undergraduate class may be the only exposure many students have to the sciences. It can be the best opportunity to interest students in scientific research and careers. How will you teach?


2020 & 2021 Summer Institutes


Regional Summer Institutes will be postponed to the summer of 2021.

Mobile Summer Institutes scheduled for May/June of 2020 have been postponed. Decisions are pending on two MoSIs in late July and August. Campuses will follow public health guidelines and will decide to host or defer to 2021. Two MoSI host sites are pursuing an online option for their campuses in 2020.

We will offer an Online Summer Institute, as we have in the past, led by Bill Wischusen.

Participants' Home Institutions



Due to the COVID-19 out-break, the Regional Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching will be postponed to the summer of 2021. The good news is that we will be able to offer an online SI, as we have in the past, led by Bill Wischusen. Keep your eye on the newsletter or the website as we will be looking for ways to engage the community virtually.
