This Week for Graduate Students: Apply for the Inclusive Teaching Seminar!
Inclusive Teaching Seminar
Conversations about inclusive teaching are increasingly more common on college campuses. Instructors are tasked with understanding and responding to issues of diversity in their classrooms and with articulating their own approach to teaching with an inclusive framework. How can we create classroom environments that set up all students for success? How can we help our students learn through the diversity of experiences and perspectives they bring to the classroom?
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. Applications for participating in the seminar will be accepted through October 3.
Date: Wednesdays from October 12 through November 16
Time: 4:00 – 5:30 pm
Location: in-person at 212 Butler Library
Approaching the Job Market
Engage with the CTL’s on-demand guides to help you plan and draft standard components of an academic job application.
Intro to the Teaching Statement
A teaching statement—one of the most frequently requested teaching materials on the academic job market—takes time to brainstorm, draft, and revise. The CTL has designed this self-paced resource to introduce you to the teaching statement and help kickstart the writing of your first draft. Access module.
Intro to the Diversity Statement
The diversity statement is a recent addition to the suite of materials hiring committees may ask for you to submit for academic job applications. These statements are often deeply personal and, as a result, can take a lot of time and effort to draft and revise. This self-paced resource introduces you to the diversity statement as a genre and helps you begin the process of ideating and crafting the first draft of your statement. Access module.
Intro to the Teaching Portfolio
This module is designed to support you in compiling a teaching portfolio: a set of materials that complements your teaching statement to represent your teaching. This CTL self-paced resource is designed to help kickstart the assembly of your portfolio and support you as you continue to develop it in the future. Access module.
