Linguistics Graduate Teacher Program: 2014-2015 Schedule of Events

CU Linguistics Department Fall Teaching Intensive

This year, we're requiring all new and second year TAs and GPTIs to attend a teaching intensive training session on August 23rd. In addition to discussing the simple logistics of teaching and running a recitation, we'll discuss resources available (including the Graduate Teacher Program) as well as some of the problems you might face both in and out of the classroom. In addition, we'll have a microteaching session for all incoming TAs to help improve classroom presence and find strengths in teaching styles. To prepare for this microteaching, please prepare a 3-5 minute lecture (on any subject within Linguistics that you're passionate about); you will then present this lecture to your colleagues. Any questions can be directed to Nick Williams, nicholas.j.williams (at) colorado.edu.

CU Linguistics Department Fall Departmental GTP Workshop

Web Presence for Linguistics Students

In this workshop we'll discuss the issue of web presence for linguists and for graduate students in particular. Working on our web presence will increase the visibility of our department and the great work being done here by our graduate students, and will be especially beneficial for those students nearing graduating and applying for jobs. We will go over non-technical basics of what to include on your academic website and spend some time playing around with the google sites tool for simple website creation. Our goal will be for everyone to have a funtioning website by the end of the workshop!

Date and Time: mid-October (tentative - check here for updates!)
