Monday, October 9th, 2017
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Advanced-Level STEM Pedagogies; Satisfies requirements for the Teaching Citation, PiP, and WU-CIRTL
In this advanced-level STEM series workshop, we will discuss effective strategies for teaching students how to critically read and evaluate scientific articles. Strategies we will discuss include using technology to help students learn to annotate as they read, designing in-class activities to help students build critical reading skills, and developing individual and group assignments to help students learn to read and understand scientific literature.
Presenters: Denise Leonard, PhD, Associate Director for Graduate-Student and Postdoc Programs, 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.
