The Science Teaching and Learning Group (STaLG) is an open discussion group that has been meeting regularly for a number of years. Our goal is to provide a place where science faculty from all disciplines, as well as others involved science education at Grinnell, can come together for informal conversations, brainstorming and strategy-sharing on a variety of topics in science teaching and learning.

We will meet at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 25, Oct. 30 and Nov. 6 (dates for Spring semester TBD) and are hoping to be able to return to providing lunches this year (watch for an announcement), so put STaLG on your calendar and plan to join us!

2013-2014 Coordinators are Ben DeRidder and Jerod Weinman. Questions? Suggestions? Ideas for future topics? Let us know!

Committee Members: Ben DeRidderJerod Weinman
