The goal of the workshop is to help participants improve instructional pedagogy for math and science courses. 

Following participation in the seminar faculty members will design a teaching application and appropriate assessment tools for their own course
that is informed by the seminar readings, demonstrations, and discussions. The format will ask participants to articulate how they will implement
the new teaching technique (step-by-step description) and assessment, how this is different from what they have done in the past, and what they
hope for as a result of this change in their teaching. The teaching application is due within two weeks of the seminar to the Teaching and Learning
Leader of the Wolfson Campus STEM FYE Title V grant.
