Universities Step Up

The University of Wisconsin's Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning says more universities are participating in its effort to enhance STEM graduate education, with a particular focus on teaching future educators, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education's Ticker blog. The program aims to "prepare graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to become better teachers," the blog says, and 25 institutions will now participate. The project is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, and teaches researchers to use the scientific method in their classrooms as well as in their labs, the Chronicle adds.
