From July 24-28 2017, Monday through Friday, from 12:30 to 4:30 pm MDT, the Teaching Institute for Graduate Education Research (TIGER) will hold the Fifth annual Summer Teaching as Research Institute for Post-docs in Engineering (STRIPE) workshop. STRIPE is a one-week summer institute for postdoctoral fellows and new faculty in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields in which they apply engineering principles of design, build, test and iterate to specific course development and utilize access to relevant literature and techniques. The 4-hour per day, 5-day workshop includes educational research techniques, CIRTL topics, and seminal disciplinary education research findings. Participants complete a genuine teaching and learning experience to discuss in their faculty job interviews. All STEM fields are welcome.

If you know of other post-docs in your lab interested in teaching at the college level, help them become aware of this opportunity!
