Upcoming workshops (event calendar)
In addition to the workshop series described below, The Teaching Center develops workshops co-sponsored by departments; these workshops are tailored for graduate students in the co-sponsoring departments and are often offered as a part of a departmental TA-training course or seminar. For information, please contact Beth Fisher, director.
The Teaching Center provides introductory-level workshops that introduce graduate-student Teaching Assistants (TAs) to effective pedagogical practices. These workshops are designed to be most useful when taken prior to or during the TA's first semesters of teaching at the university. Graduate students who are enrolled in departments that require their attendance at The Teaching Center's TA-Training Workshops will have priority to enroll in these workshops. After the priority-registration period expires, graduate students from any department may register. A new topic is offered on three different occasions each month, September-November and February-April. Participation in these workshops may partially satisfy the introductory-level training-requirement of the Teaching Citation.
This advanced-level workshop series, co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Senate, provides instruction in advanced pedagogical topics that are relevant to graduate students who are preparing to apply for a future academic position or to teach their own courses (or portions of an existing course). These workshops are open to Washington University graduate students and postdoctoral appointees. Participation in these workshops may partially satisfy the advanced-level training-requirement of the Teaching Citation.
Teaching Methods & Strategies
The Teaching Center provides advanced-level workshops on topics specific to university-level teaching in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). These workshops are open to Washington University graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in STEM departments. These workshops are supported, in part, by a grant from HHMI (Howard Hughes Medical Institute). Participation in these workshops may partially satisfy the advanced-level training-requirement of the Teaching Citation and the WU-CIRTL programs.
