This Week for Graduate Students: Evidence-Based Teaching in Science and Engineering: Apply by February 19

by | Feb 8, 2021

Evidence-Based Teaching in Science and Engineering

In the Evidence-based Teaching in Science and Engineering (ETSE) seminar, you will apply the principles of backward design to develop student learning objectives, aligned assessments, and active learning activities to better facilitate student learning, culminating in a syllabus for a introductory class in your discipline. As part of this seminar, you will take part and contribute to a learning community of teaching practitioners in which you give and receive feedback on assignments by your peers.

This seminar is targeted toward graduate students and postdocs in sciences (natural, biomedical, health) and engineering who are teaching for the first time or looking to advance their teaching by engaging with the research on teaching and learning. Applications will be accepted through February 19.

Dates: Thursdays: March 11, 18, 25, April 1
Time: 5:00 PM–7:00 PM ET

Inclusive Teaching Seminar

Join us for an in-depth series of workshops coordinated with Inclusive Teaching: Supporting All Students in the College Classroom, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) produced by the CTL that explores the principles and frameworks that define an inclusive teaching practice. The discussion series consists of 6 sessions, each one debriefing a module of the MOOC. 

Graduate students are invited to complete as many modules and attend as many sessions as they can, according to their schedule and interests. Each individual session may be counted towards the pedagogy workshop requirement of the Teaching Development Program (TDP)

Upcoming sessions (Wednesdays, 4:00 PM–5:30 PM ET):

CTLgrads Journal Club

Are you interested in the research on teaching and learning and how to apply this research to your teaching practice? Join us for our CTLgrads Journal Club where we will introduce you to the research on teaching various disciplines (also known as Discipline-Based Education Research, or DBER) and engage peer-reviewed articles through our group discussions and contributions to the journal club.

Next session: Thursday, February 11
Time: 2:40 PM–3:55 PM
