Promotion of Experiential and Active, Research-based, Learning (PEARLS) is a new initiative at the University of Windsor spearheaded by the Teaching Leadership Chair in Science, Dr. Chitra Rangan. In this presentation, Dr. Rangan will discuss the development of a community of practice, a network of educators who are engaged in experiential, active and research-based learning pedagogies. Some ideas that will be explored are: - The need for a champion for evidence-based and scholarly approach to teaching and learning within Faculties of Science. - Providing experiential learning in the context of diminishing research dollars. - Ideas to transform and enhance graduate education in Physics.
