Why MoSI?

Overwhelming evidence shows that students perform better in active learning classrooms. A finding across the literature shows that students are 1.5 times more likely to pass compared to students in sections that use traditional lecturing only.

Goal is to Retain students

At UA Little Rock, 94 classes (more than 10% of those offered in Fall 2019) had a DFW rate of greater than 40 percent. The MoSI workshop will help you improve student learning without watering down course goals, so more students learn the material and progress toward their degrees.

More about the MoSI Workshop

The workshop is open to ALL faculty that teach at UA Little Rock, not just science faculty (as may be inferred by the name of the workshop). Food will be provided each day (pastries, coffee, and full lunch).

The UA Little Rock MoSI will expand and sharpen participants’ teaching skills through workshops facilitated by national science education experts and some of our own faculty members! Participants will have a hands-on experience of the impact of evidence-based teaching approaches such as active learning and inclusive teaching practices, with deliberate and backwards design. This workshop has been identified as a major transformative event in the career of many college faculty, from R1 institutions to community colleges.
