Heard about the Delta Internship and wondering how it actually works? And how do you find time and support to pursue teaching professional development like the Delta Internship? At the December Roundtable, you’ll learn about the Delta Internship and WISCIENCE Teaching Fellows programs, and hear from graduate students and their faculty partners who have completed a Delta Internship Teaching-as-Research project. They’ll discuss their projects and how they’ve made time and garnered support to become better teachers. We’ll also discuss concrete strategies on how to incorporate those opportunities into your postdoc or graduate education. Registration is required.
