Regional Summer Institutes

Overview

 

The Summer Institutes are intensive multi-day workshops held throughout the United States that introduce STEM educators to the principles of evidence-based teaching. Participants include college and university faculty and future faculty in STEM fields from both research- and teaching-intensive institutions. Each year, approximately 200 participants attend one of up to six “regional” Summer Institutes, which draw faculty teams from institutions in a proximal geographic region.

A Note for IRACDA Applicants

Institutional Research and Academic Career Development Awards (IRACDA) Postdoctoral Scholars are given priority status to attend a regional Summer Institute. The Summer Institutes are an excellent opportunity for IRACDA postdocs to develop their teaching skills and prepare to join the next generation of biomedical educators. For more information, please contact summer.institutes@yale.edu.

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.
