Preparing and Delivering a Teaching Talk or Demonstration for a Campus Interview
Wednesday, December 10th, 2014
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
A campus visit invitation from a search committee is welcome news, but it often comes with a challenging request for a “teaching talk” or “teaching demo.” In this workshop, participants will discuss what makes an effective teaching demonstration and strategies for preparing a talk that highlights their approaches to teaching. Participants will learn questions to ask the institution before the visit, how to design a talk that is appropriate for each audience and purpose, and how to include student interaction and other methods of demonstrating your effectiveness as an instructor.
Registration is required, and seating is limited.
Presenters: Michelle Repice, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center and Bryn Lutes, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center
This workshop is part of the Professional Development in Teaching Workshop Series, co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Senate.
Participation in this workshop series partially satisfies the advanced-level training requirement for the Teaching Citation program and the Preparation in Pedagogy (PiP) program.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by attendance at a specified number of introductory-level TA-Training workshops.
