Fundamentals of Teaching in STEM
Open to anyone, though mostly focused at graduate students acting as first time Teaching Fellows in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics courses.
What to Expect
Are you teaching a class, section or lab in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) for the first time? Have you taught before but are looking for ways to become a more engaging and effective teacher? Then join us for this interactive four-week workshop in which we will discuss many of the nuts and bolts that will help you lead a successful (and enjoyable!) class, section or lab this year. Topics will include setting goals for your class, adapting to various learning styles and environments, engaging your class through active learning, soliciting feedback, and grading effectively. A light breakfast will be served. Participating in at least three of the four sessions is required for the Certificate of College Teaching Preparation (CCTP).
