CTAL sets teaching conference for graduate students, postdocs
11:08 a.m., Jan. 10, 2013--The University of Delaware Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning (CTAL) will hold a half-day conference titled “Broadening Your Repertoire” for graduate students and postdocs on Thursday, Jan. 24, in Gore Hall.
The conference will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, and will conclude with a buffet lunch. Pre-registration is required for both the conference sessions and the lunch.
Dissertation boot camp
The practice-based, interactive sessions will focus on student-centered teaching and academic career development issues. It is the goal of organizers that participants will leave with tangible strategies and concrete work products and expand their repertoire of professional skills by exchanging experiences, ideas and suggestions with peers and facilitators.
Participants will be able to choose from four concurrent 75-minute sessions, with each session being offered twice to meet students’ interests and needs. Session topics include designing and teaching a stand-alone course, keeping students engaged, writing an effective teaching statement and developing a persuasive CV and cover letter.
Sessions will be facilitated by TA Fellows and faculty.
The event provides follow-up to the TA Conference and fall pedagogy and academic career preparation sessions and is co-sponsored by the Office of Graduate and Professional Education and Graduate Student Government.
