Workshop for Interdisciplinary and Inquiry Based Teaching of Calculus

When: Saturday, April 5, 2014, 8:30am — 4pm
Where: University of South Florida Main Campus, Tampa FL — ENB Hall of Flags

The University of South Florida is hosting a workshop for college and university faculty and administrators interested in exploring avenues for interdisciplinary and inquiry based teaching of calculus. The workshop will provide participants with training and materials that were developed at USF with the support of a STEP (Science Talent Expansion Program) grant from the National Science Foundation. Participants will engage in hands-on activities to learn how to use applied science and engineering projects and implement guided inquiry activities in calculus courses. The workshop leaders will also discuss some strategies for incorporating interdisciplinary peer mentoring in STEM courses.

The workshop is designed for STEM faculty and administrators from Florida colleges and universities. Accepted applicants will receive a stipend of $300. Participants are invited to apply here. A registration fee of $20 will be payable in cash on arrival. Lunch and coffee will be provided.

The deadline for registration is Friday, March 29, 2014. Space is limited.
