Future Professors Development Circle
Switching gears from expert to learner
Instructors should thing of themselves as learners rather than as experts. Authority in the classroom doesn’t come only, or even mostly, from perfect knowledge
Explore pedagogical issues, effective and disruptive teaching strategies, and gain confidence in your ability to teach at the college level. This professional development circle helps graduate students to teach in the academy, whether they are currently teaching, working as a teaching assistant, or considering teaching as a career path. Share teaching tips, tricks, and get support from other future professors. Discussions for fall will be based on chapters from Teaching What You Don’t Know by Therese Huston; however, there is no required reading to participate.
Attend when you can – no registration is necessary. This group is open to all graduate students, with all sessions held in the CTLT Resource Commons, 301 S. Main St.
