STEM Pedagogy Journal Club is a monthly meeting of grad students and postdocs interested in science education and the latest practices in teaching.
 
On Tuesday, April 19th from 4-5pm in MRBIV 11455, Vanderbilt’s STEM Pedagogy Journal Club will be welcoming Dr. Derek Bruff, Director of the Center for Teaching at Vanderbilt. We will be discussing ‘clicker’ technology in the classroom and the article: Smith, M. K., Wood, W. B., Adams, W. K., Wieman, C., Knight, J. K., Gulid, N., & Su, T. T. (2009). Why peer discussion improves student performance on in-class concept questions.  Science, 323(5910), 122-124. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19119232).
 
No experience needed, just an interest to learn! We hope to see you there!
