Faculty Teaching Institute, June 2024

June 3 - June 6, 2024
Washington, DC

Registration for the June 2024 FTI in Washington, DC, will open in early 2024. 

The FTI: Physics and Astronomy Faculty Teaching Institute is our flagship workshop program and is dedicated to developing faculty members' teaching practice. The next FTI will be held us in beautiful Washington, DC from June 3-6, 2024.  

This 4-day immersive workshop will dig deep into the how and why of helping students learn physics and astronomy, so you can build the type of teaching practice that you want. In the workshop we will cover things such as:

  • Managing your role as a new faculty member
  • Principles of effective teaching and learning
  • Equity, diversity, and inclusion in the classroom
  • How to help students learn through presentation, small group work, whole class discussion, reading, simulations, demonstrations, think-pair-share, and more.
  • How to assess students compassionately, to support their learning
  • Managing challenging teaching situations
  • Creating a teaching action plan
