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.
