In this interactive workshop, participants will experience multiple examples of how active learning can work in undergraduate courses, with a particular emphasis on biology and chemistry. Attendees will experience examples of how to integrate active learning in 1-minute, 5-minutes, 10-minutes, and 20-minutes that highlight common teaching strategies. In addition, participants will explore how student work produced during active learning can be systematically analyzed quickly to guide teaching decisions.

Do you have a reliable and strong network of mentors? The Mentoring 101 workshop is specifically designed to address the unique concerns of mentorships and how to get what you need to thrive in academia. Learn to cultivate strong mentoring relationships and sponsors that help you move to the next level.
All participants will:
Learn from other changemakers in STEM, and build your professional and academic network at WINS. The WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford (WINS) provides you the opportunity to engage with a diverse array of stand-out women in science and engineering, and connect with potential mentors, peers, and other colleagues.
The Fall 2018 WINS will feature Ellen Ochoa, PhD.
Learn the science behind great teams and skills to lead high performance teams.
Engaging with faculty mentors can be challenging, because you both come with expectations that are often hidden and not explicitly discussed. This can impact critical issues in communication, research directions, authorship, and so on. Through this workshop, you will gain skills and confidence to engage pro-actively with faculty.
Learn how to manage the challenges and joys of life as a doctoral student, focusing on managing your schedule, your relationship with your advisor, and making the most of what should be a truly special time.
