The Inclusive STEM Teaching Project, a NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education program, is hosting two concurrent opportunities from March 23rd - May 4th: a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) and virtual learning communities. 

The six-week MOOC is designed to advance the awareness, self-efficacy, and ability of STEM faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and staff to cultivate inclusive learning environments for their students. Participants will engage in deep reflection and discussion around topics of equity and inclusion across a variety of institutional contexts.

Additionally, asynchronous online activities within edX will be extended through synchronous virtual learning communities. This local learning community is intended for future faculty, i.e. graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in any discipline.

The local learning community will be meeting weekly on:

Mondays from noon-1pm (March 28, April 4, 11, 18, 25, and May 2)

We estimate you will spend 3-5 hours per week engaged in the course and associated discussions, which include review/completion of course materials, plus a 60 minute weekly learning community meeting.
