Mobile Institute on Scientific Teaching (MIST)

January 16-19, 2024
Hosted in person by Queensborough Community College

This four day workshop is an introduction to evidence-based teaching practices such as using active learning in the classroom. It is open to all college faculty. Learn basic principles and practice applying them in a fun and engaging way with your colleagues. Participation has transformed the teaching of many faculty in the our network--we highly recommend it! The network is covering all participant costs so it is free for anyone to attend (although note that participants must attend the entire 3.5 days of the workshop). Click here to register!

Two of our Co-PI's Discuss the Network


The (STEM)2 Network focuses on the pivotal role of faculty in restructuring undergraduate STEM education with the mission of providing an equitable and inclusive system for all students.


The overarching goals for the Network are to:


To achieve these goals, the Network’s activities: 

Three Foundational Frameworks

Areas of Focus

Various areas of focus have emerged from discussions among Network participants - each tackling undergraduate STEM education from different perspectives.  Participants self-select into multidisciplinary, multi-institution Working Groups to develop projects related to their area of interest.

Institutional Systems

To identify and utilize leverage points with the greatest impact on STEM higher education

Interdisciplinary Teaching

To create interdisciplinary collaborations and assess the impacts of explicitly interdisciplinary teaching approaches

Transfer Pathways

To address the specific challenges faced by transfer students

Access to Undergraduate Research

To explore and develop interventions to create more equitable and inclusive access to undergraduate research. 

Peer Engagement

To develop peer-level systems that support students and faculty.
