As the semester is coming to a close, it is time for student evaluations of teaching (SETs). A research study was done in which a simple intervention drew student attention to the idea that gender bias is known to exist in SETs before they completed evaluations.

Here is an article on creating opportunities for equity and inclusion in math. “Diversity of thinking is needed to bring new ideas and fresh perspectives to complex problems. We should be harnessing all the talent and interest in our society possible, because it’s simply the morally correct and smart thing to do.”
We are looking for our next cohort of amazing faculty to lead STEM teaching at UP. The 2018 cohort has done great work … and had a lot of fun! Join us!
The REFLECT project was recently featured by UP. Take a look at the great article:
I am pleased to let you know that the following STEM faculty members have been selected as STEM Innovation Fellows for 2018 and will participate in the first REFLECT institute in May, funded by the NSF IUSE grant. We have a great mix of junior and senior faculty at different levels of adoption of evidence-based practices, and we have representation from all STEM departments.
