Abell Conversations

The Sandra K. Abell Conversations about College Science Teaching are monthly discussions to enhance teaching capacity of faculty, graduate students, and postdocs and support a thriving instructional community on campus. The meetings are interdisciplinary across natural and physical sciences, science and mathematics education, engineering, and professional schools at the University of Missouri. For more than 15 years, the conversations have provided college science teachers with time and space to reflect on their own teaching challenges and learn new teaching methods from their peers. The informal environment with free pizza fosters community and collaboration.
