Teaching Institute for Graduate Education Research (TIGER) Teaching-as-Research Guided Engineering Teams (TARGET)
The TIGER TARGET program brings together faculty and students in College of Engineering to study aspects of teaching and learning within engineering. Together, these teams will use the familiar tools of research in their field to study teaching and learning in their discipline. The TIGER TARGET program is an expansion of the TIGER Teaching-as-Research program, and is an initiative to include undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs and faculty members.
How TIGER TARGET Can Benefit YOU
For undergraduate students - Are you interested in teaching at the college level? The TIGER TARGET program can provide an opportunity for you to gain experience using modern teaching methods and prepare you for your future job.
For graduate students/post-docs – Already teaching or planning a course? Preparing for a career as a professor? The TIGER TARGET program can provide an opportunity for you to gain experience using modern teaching methods and prepare you for your future job. In addition, if you are participating in the Graduate Teacher Program this project could count towards your Preparing Future Faculty Project for the Professional Development Certificate in Preparing Future Faculty. More information about this certification can be found here!
For professors – Already mentoring a post-doc? Have an NSF grant? The TIGER TARGET program is a great way to fulfill the post-doc mentorship requirement of NSF grants as well as add to the Broader-Impacts Criterion of your NSF projects. Perhaps you are curious about how your teaching methods are working? This is an opportunity to apply your research expertise to find out.
