Laying the Foundations for a Successful Teaching Career (virtual)
January 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This five-session short course explores and builds a foundation of skills and habits to develop teaching approaches that will support a successful teaching career. Development of these skills can start as early as graduate school. This short course includes developing or refining some aspects of your teaching portfolio:
- Session 1: participants select and “unpack” the teaching approach of a favorite assignment or important learning activity asked of students
- Session 2: participants will develop an instrument (a rubric) to measure student learning that results from their teaching and learning process
- Sessions 3 and 4: building upon prior sessions, participants will plan a change to improve their teaching process in a way that aligns with elements of their teaching philosophy
- Session 5: participants will document their teaching approach for a teaching presentation, or record a teaching demonstration with an accompanying explanation
