NAS Summer Institute at Washington State University
July 21-24, 2014

WSU Provost’s Office and the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine Teaching Academy is proud to provide an opportunity to host the 2014 National Academies Summer Institute on the WSU Pullman campus.

The theme for the Summer Institutes is "scientific teaching." Participants learn practical strategies for enhancing student learning. The institutes model the scientific teaching principles of active learning, assessment, and diversity, which are integrated into all aspects of the week’s schedule. Activities include reflective writing, planning, reading, researching, discussing teaching methods and philosophy, interactive presentations, and developing teaching materials. By the end of an institute, participants will have observed, evaluated, and collected a portfolio of innovative teaching approaches and instructional materials that are ready to be adopted and adapted to their own teaching environments.
