Science Teaching Responsiveness Conference
Seattle Pacific University
July 7-10, 2013
We are pleased to announce the 2013 Science Teaching Responsiveness Conference, to be held July 7-10, 2013, at Seattle Pacific University.
The goal of the conference is to clarify what our discipline has to say about responsive teaching, envision future research directions, and foster intra-institutional collaborations. The outcome of the conference will be an edited book with chapters contributed by conference participants. Participants will have the option of either authoring or reviewing a book chapter (or both). The conference and the book will be organized around five themes:
- Definitions and examples of responsive teaching
- Responsive instructional materials
- Relationship of responsive teaching to disciplinary substance
- Assessing responsive teaching
- Significance of responsive teaching
The conference will include morning plenary talks, afternoon working groups centered on conference themes and book chapter editing, a contributed poster session, and informal free time in the evenings. Plenary speakers include:
Fred Goldberg (San Diego State University)
David Hammer (Tufts University)
Rachel Scherr (Seattle Pacific University)
Miriam Sherin (Northwestern University)
Note: Frederick Erickson is regretfully unable to attend.
A conference schedule is available as a PDF.
The conference is open to invitees only. Registration will open in early 2013.
Conference organizers: Amy Robertson, Rachel Scherr, and David Hammer.
