Are you an advanced graduate student interested in . . .

  • Exploring innovative research-based methods that will help your students learn better and increase your satisfaction as a teacher?
  • Preparing for the academic job market by developing your teaching profile?
  • Learning about practical tools for jump-starting your teaching career after you land your first faculty position?

If your answer to these questions is “yes,” then this professional development seminar may be for you!

This Fall, the Teaching Resource Center will be offering for the third time a professional development seminar for advanced graduate students on Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. The UNST 8130 seminar is designed to help you think about teaching for the academic job market and to give you practical tools for jump-starting your teaching career as new faculty members.

Comments from past participants include:

  • Something I’d been hoping for since I realized we wouldn’t be getting any in-depth teacher training when we started as T.A.s
  • I would definitely recommend it to others and hope that departments would encourage taking it.
  • I will keep the materials from this course for years to come and I expect to refer to them regularly.
