I started the STEM Instructional Program the summer before my first teaching experience as a graduate student at WMU, and I saw it as a great training opportunity for the upcoming school year. As a General Chemistry II lab instructor, I would encounter students from various majors and backgrounds, with different learning styles and attitudes toward chemistry and math.

In order to effectively engage these students in a pre-lab lecture and to prepare them to complete the experiments, I needed to learn how to keep their attention, clearly explain and relay information in an interesting way, check their understanding, and assess my teaching for improvement along the way.


This poster was completed for STEM Instructional Program 18-19 and was presented at Fall Convocation 2019.
