The MIST is a project-based training program combining interactive workshops on the tenets of scientific teaching with group work sessions where participants develop inclusive, student-centered teaching materials that they present to colleagues for peer-review at the end of the week.
Group work carefully designed to model scientific teaching has been found to be one of the most important processes at the Summer Institute. Each is led by a trained facilitator to model teaching practices that will help the group establish and meet common goals. Each group presents their teaching module for review during a dress rehearsal with another group and a final presentation. This allows groups to practice providing feedback on the effectiveness of learning activities and to incorporate peer feedback into their teaching modules before using them in their own classes.
Each group will create a folder in this Google Group Work folder where you will work collaboratively on your teaching module (tidibt) for the week.
In addition, all new MIST participants have access to a Master MIST Google folder, where you can access teaching modules from other institutions.
