With additional NSF support (Type 2 Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science award, 2011-2015; S.G. Hoskins and K. Kenyon) the original C.R.E.A.T.E. project is currently being expanded nationally.
Two (identical) workshops will be held in 2013 at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, located in Geneva, New York.
Session I: June 10 - June 14
Session II: June 17 - June 21
Each workshop will run Monday through Thursday, 8AM – 5PM; Friday 8 AM – 12PM). Participants will learn C.R.E.A.T.E. approaches that move beyond a lecture-based format by using primary literature to integrate student understanding of content within the context of the research process. By transforming the learning environment, participants will learn how to challenge students to think and act as scientists. Workshop participants will be prepared to introduce C.R.E.A.T.E. either as a stand-alone course or adapt the strategy within an existing framework (e.g. teaching a senior capstone course using C.R.E.A.T.E.).
We invite applications from science faculty at two and four year institutions; postdoctoral fellows are welcome to apply if teaching in the academic year following the workshop. Twenty-five faculty will be selected for each session. All expenses, except travel, will be covered by our NSF grant.

Deadline for Summer 2013 Workshop Application: February 15, 2013.
Notification of outcomes will be sent by March 15, 2013.
