This 1.5-day workshop, which has been given to enthusiastic audiences on six continents, will address topics like

          ·     How do students learn? How do teachers teach? What goes wrong in the process?
          ·     How can I get students actively involved in learning, even if there are 200 in the class?
          ·     How can I assess learning and skill development? How can I design tests that are both rigorous and fair?
          ·     How can new faculty members become fully effective in teaching and productive in research in 1-2 years instead
                of the usual 4-5 years?
