Teaching Across Disciplines: Teaching Non-Major Students

Facilitator: Dr. Alain Plante, Professor, Earth & Environmental Sciences
Convener: Jaydee Edwards, CETLI Graduate Fellow, Earth & Environmental Sciences

The liberal arts undergraduate curriculum at Penn requires all undergraduates to fulfill general education requirements in STEM fields (Sectors V, VI and VII; Quantitative Data Analysis) regardless of their background preparation and interests. This poses specific challenges for teaching STEM content and skills to non-STEM majors. This workshop will focus on thinking beyond WHAT we want non-majors to learn, and more carefully considering WHY we want them to learn these skills and content as a means of meeting those challenges.

All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Earth & Environmental Sciences department, and so may be most useful to students in related fields.

Counts toward the CETLI Teaching Certificate.
