Teaching Fellow positions with WISCIENCE
Updated by Janaina on November 20, 1:10 pm

 

Application deadline has been extended to November 30, 2014.

The Teaching Fellows Program is an exciting two-semester opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to learn about and develop innovative and effective ways to teach biology. Teaching Fellows work with faculty mentors and other partners to develop instructional materials that engage students in active learning, assess learning outcomes and address issues of diversity in an undergraduate biology course at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Fellows then use their instructional materials and apply their skills in the classroom as they team teach the course. Teaching Fellows also become part of an ongoing community of scientific teachers. Fellows provide support and feedback to one another and participate together in additional workshops and teaching opportunities. More information about the program can be found at http://www.biology.wisc.edu/TeachingFellows.htm

 

Applications should be completed online at biology.wisc.edu/tfapp_S2015
