This summer the Teaching Institute for Graduate Education Research (TIGER) will hold the second annual Summer Teaching as Research Institute for Post-docs in Engineering (STRIPE) workshop. STRIPE is a one-week summer institute for postdoctoral fellows in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields in which they will apply engineering principles of design, build, test and iterate to specific course development and utilize access to relevant literature and techniques. The 4-hour per day, 5-day workshop will include educational research techniques, CIRTL topics, and seminal engineering education research findings. Participants will complete a genuine teaching and learning experience to discuss in their faculty job interviews. All STEM fields are welcome.

If you know of other post-docs in your lab interested in teaching at the college level, help them become aware of this opportunity!

  • You will spend one week in beautiful Boulder, Colorado! Help with housing can be coordinated. Participants are responsible for housing expenses.
