9:00-9:30              Check-in, Buttrick Atrium (first event begins at 9:30 AM)

12:00-12:45         Lunch (Free to registered participants!)

12:45-1:50           Session II Workshops

We are looking forward to a great day of workshops and discussions on teaching, learning, and professional development issues across the disciplines. The event will begin with a plenary session in which a panel of faculty members discuss how they transcend the four walls of the classroom in their teaching practices, and will feature Nancy Chick (English), Sharon Shields (Human & Organizational Development), and Barb Stengel (Teaching & Learning). Participants then select workshops in three sequential sessions. Workshops include:

  • Grading Efficiently: Finding the Time to Grade Fairly
  • Flipping the Classroom
  • Teaching with Case Studies
  • Making Discussions Safe
  • Writing in the STEM Classroom
  • Beyond Templates: Effective Powerpoint Design
  • Transitioning to Professorship: Teaching Statements and Portfolios
  • Beyond the Ivory Tower: Alternative and Non-Academic Career Choices
  • Finding Teaching Moments in the Field: Learner-centered Field Research Programs
  • Adding Spatial Dimensions to Teaching
  • Social Pedagogies: Motivating Students through Social Media and Authentic Audiences

Graduate Student Teaching Event for Professional Development (GradSTEP) is co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Council and the Center for Teaching.
