Advanced-Level STEM Pedagogies; Satisfies requirements for the Teaching Citation, PiP, and WU-CIRTL
Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) is a widely used active-learning strategy in which small groups of students work together on structured activities, under the guidance of a trained undergraduate who has performed well in the course. This advanced-level workshop will explore the philosophy behind PLTL, as well as the practical aspects of running a PLTL program. This is an elective workshop for the WU-CIRTL program.
Presenters: Jacinta Mutambuki, Ph.D., STEM Education Postdoctoral Research Associate and Julia Johnson, Ph.D, Assistant Director of Academic Services, The Teaching Center
This workshop is open to Washington University graduate students beyond their first year and postdoctoral appointees in STEM, and is part of the STEM Pedagogies series.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend introductory-level Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by participation in Foundations in Teaching Workshops.
