Monday Workshop Archives
Laura Border, Director, Graduate Teacher Program
This workshop is for beginning graduate students. Although this is your first year in graduate school, planning for graduation and the job market is a good idea. We will discuss how you can plan your experience at CU Boulder, so you will have examples and evidence for your job market portfolio.
Will Styler, Lead 2012-14, Linguistics
A little humor goes a long way towards better teaching, better learning, and a more enjoyable classroom environment. In this workshop, we¹ll talk about how, when, and why to work humor into your classroom, where to draw the lines, and most importantly, how to turn "ridiculous" into "respected" in the eyes of your students.
Susanne Stadlbauer, Lead Coordinator, Graduate Teacher Program
Trevor DiMartino, TIGER/CIRTL Liaison
This workshop is a simulation-based workshop meant to demonstrate different strategies for inclusive teaching. We will simulate how it feels to be in a classroom where usual inadvertent bias is altered. We will also work on teaching strategies that limit bias and on making your classroom interactions more fair.
Tamara Milbourn, Lead 2014-15, Education
The word "university" comes from the Latin universus meaning "together, all in one, whole, entire, relating to all." Many instructors experience tension between being inclusive in the classroom while enforcing standards of the academic community. This workshop focuses on discussing issues related to being responsive to students and at the same time building an academically rigorous classroom atmosphere.
Rachel Austin, Lead 2014-15, French and Italian
In this workshop, we will reconnect with our former selves as beginning language students. Then, using different learning strategies, we will rework basic model exercises into activities that will engage more students in your classroom.
Joanna Hubbard, Doctoral Candidate, EBIO
In some disciplines, published papers, rather than textbooks, track the progress of the field. In this workshop, we'll discuss how to use this literature (specifically peer-reviewed scientific papers) in a course, 1) teaching your students how to read a scientific paper, 2) stimulating discussion among students, and 3) developing in-class activities.
Ramesh Muralimanohar, Lead 2013-15
In this interactive session participants will discuss methods and strategies to encourage student learning among your students. Self-teaching helps students build the skills they need in a real-life work environment and also allows for deeper coverage of topics. Come prepared to discuss and work through strategies that you can use in your class.
