Preparing a teaching demo for a job interview

July 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

As part of the interview process for a faculty position, you may be asked to lead a teaching demonstration. In this interactive workshop, we’ll discuss ways to go into your teaching demo with preparedness, confidence, and adaptability. Participants will explore considerations related to their audience, factors affecting content, logistics (including technology), and teaching/learning interactions. Participants will also strategize ways to cope with unexpected challenges that could emerge during a teaching demo. By the end of this workshop, participants will be prepared to:

  • Identify questions and decision points useful in preparing a teaching demo for a job interview.
  • Strategize ways to gather the information needed to effectively plan a teaching demo.
  • Generate strategies for dealing effectively with challenging situations that might emerge during a demo (e.g., logistical, technological, or interpersonal).
