Postdoctoral Short Course on College Teaching in Science and Engineering

Applications for participation were due in August 2013, watch for this opportunity next year. 
The Center for Research on Learning and Teaching and Rackham Graduate School seek applicants for the Postdoctoral Short-Course on College Teaching in Science and Engineering. The purpose of this short-course is to prepare a select group of 32 advanced postdoctoral scholars from a variety of disciplines in the sciences and engineering to teach effectively as future faculty members. The short-course consists of seven three-hour seminars. Each of the seven seminars will follow a similar format, emphasizing advanced preparation so that time in sessions may be devoted to active learning and reflection.

The seven-week short-course will meet on Mondays, 9 a.m. – noon, March 11 through April 22, 2013. Apply here.

  • To discuss and reflect upon a number of pedagogical topics and to apply them to one's teaching, e.g., the research on teaching and learning, the principles of course design, multicultural teaching, and instructional technology
  • To help prepare graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to obtain jobs and to make successful transitions to junior faculty positions.
