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 that is aligned with other teaching-related job market materials. 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.
All workshops will take place via Zoom in Spring 2021. A link to the Zoom session will be sent out with the reminder email the day before the workshop. Attendees must plan to participate in the entire workshop in order to get credit for attendance towards the Professional Development in Teaching Program.
This series is only open to advanced graduate students (in their third year or beyond) and postdocs. Should you need to participate in this program sooner, please contact Dr. Meg Gregory, Assistant Director, The Center for Teaching and Learning at email@example.com.
