FYI Stories

Task force

A faculty-driven self-study of the University of Delaware's broad goals in undergraduate education is underway to ensure that UD students of the future are prepared for tomorrow's challenges.

Suspect in jail

The University of Delaware Police Department has arrested and charged a UD graduate student with 21 counts of criminal violation of privacy for allegedly hiding video cameras in various restrooms, most of them women's restrooms, over a period of more than two years.

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.

Pre-registration (for both conference sessions and buffet lunch) is required by Thursday, Jan. 17. To pre-register, go to this website.
