Whether you are developing your teaching skills or starting your academic job search, as graduate students and postdocs you will find a variety of workshops aimed at helping you prepare for teaching in higher education.
Teaching Workshops for Future Faculty and TA Development
The spring teaching workshop series includes four workshops delivered over two days, with the first two workshops on the last Friday in February and the last two workshops occurring on the last Friday in March. We welcome you to attend one or all of the sessions as your schedule allows.
These workshops are aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who are teaching assistants and/or preparing for careers as faculty in higher education. While this workshop series contributes to the foundation-level learning outcomes for the Teach to Teaching certificate and the associate level CIRTL certificate, all are welcome regardless of membership in these certificate programs.

"Tell me, I’ll forget. Show me, I’ll remember. Involve me, I’ll understand.” Is there any scientific support for this proverb? And, if so, how can we use these principles in the classroom? You’ll leave this workshop armed with a toolbox of evidence-based teaching techniques and the knowledge of how to use them to support student learning.
