Evidence Based Teaching: Teaching as Research/Scholarship 2018
Workshop Leaders: Professors John Heywood (Trinity College, Dublin) and Pears (Uppsala University and Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden
Welcome to our FIE/ASEE co-sponsored Workshop page.
The purpose of the page is to provide a central access point to the resources associated with the workshop, and to serve as a repository for project materials for those workshop participants who elect to carry out a research project based in their own educational practice.
The workshop is divided into four thematic areas. Each session is based on a prior reading assignment as outlined below. The sessions at the FIE conference will assume a background in these readings and build upon them through discussion and presentations.
The workshop consists of the following 4 themes and associated readings (see links below).
