Preparing and Delivering a Teaching Talk or Demonstration for a Campus Interview
Tuesday, December 9th, 2014
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
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.
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.
