Eighteen faculty members in the natural sciences departments in the Dietrich School of Arts & Sciences were recently awarded the Discipline-based Science Education Research (dB-SERC) Leader Award.
This yearly award recognizes and celebrates the contributions of the dB-SERC faculty learning community and their active participation in many dB-SERC events during the last academic year. These faculty members have played a key role in the dB-SERC weekly lunch discussions focusing on innovative approaches to teaching and learning in the natural sciences.
The dB-SERC promotes and supports evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning in the natural sciences. In addition to workshops and special events, the dB-SERC faculty learning community gives the faculty members opportunity to share their course transformation projects involving evidence-based approaches. More information about dB-SERC can be found here.
