2017 Pedagogy Institute for Graduate Students and Postdocs

Please join Rice’s Center for Teaching Excellence for our fall Pedagogy Institute for Graduate Students and Postdocs on Monday, October 9th, from 11:00AM-2:00PM.
 

Every Classroom Is Different And Why This Matters For Teaching

Patricia Bilbao Ergueta, Physics & Astronomy
Thomas Clements, Biochemistry & Cell Biology
Emily Schultz, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Rebecca Smith, Computer Science

In this 3-hour workshop, facilitated by CTE Graduate Fellows, students will learn principles of effective college teaching and see a number of models that will help them think about what they and their students bring with them to the classroom. Participants will learn how to design course goals, incorporate them into a syllabus, and implement them in an engaging, inclusive class. Highly recommended for those who will be graduate instructors or plan to apply to academic positions.

Lunch will be served, and all graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are welcome.
