SENCER began as a dissemination project. Publishing curricula, research articles, and science/civic connections has been an important part of our work. We produce a number of resources describing how SENCER is applied on campuses across the country, and scholarship on the use of the SENCER method.

We invite you to use and share our resources.

Model Courses

The SENCER model courses are particularly successful examples of curricular approaches to improving science learning through engagement with complex issues.

SENCER backgrounders are intended to provide intelligent, general readers with high quality syntheses of some of the complex, capacious civic issues that SENCER courses sometimes use to teach basic science.

SENCER publishes a peer-reviewed journal twice yearly on connections between science education and civic engagement. Books about SENCER are also available from external publishers.

Assessment (SALG and SoTL)

Our assessment instrument measures learning gains as self-reported by students. It provides useful, formative feedback to faculty interested in improving their teaching. The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is a field dedicated to engaging in teaching as a scholarly pursuit.
