This course offers participants the opportunity to develop foundational knowledge of a wide range of pedagogical theories, ideas, and practices. The material in the course pulls from classical pedagogical literature as well as the latest science in cognitive research. An emphasis is placed on fostering a learner-centered classroom that highlights the interconnected cycle of teaching, learning, and assessment. Participants will engage in the course material using a Teaching-As-Research (TAR) approach and explore how excellence and diversity are intertwined. Together, we will create a learning community of reflective practitioners of teaching. More specifically, we will examine the literature in teaching and learning, produce learner-centered syllabi, and practice actual teaching in a supportive environment grounded in a TAR approach. After completing this course, participants will have tools to create an inclusive classroom environment that welcomes all learners and use a TAR approach in future classrooms of their own.

Research Mentor Training Seminar learning community

We will be offering multiple sections of Research Mentor Training this summer. All sections count toward the learning community requirement for the Delta Certificate in Teaching and Learning. *** The Research Mentor Training Seminar does not satisfy the course prerequisite for the Internship Program.***

 

Offered in collaboration between WISCIENCE and Delta, the Research Mentor Training Seminar is designed to help graduate students and postdocs become effective research mentors. Seminar discussions focus on different mentoring styles and strategies for developing confidence, independence, creativity, and communication skills in your current and future mentees. The mentor-training seminar consists of weekly one-hour sessions in which participants address issues in mentoring through facilitated discussions based on collaboration and collective problem solving. Participants will read articles and case studies, write biographies of their mentees, compare their goals with those of their mentees, explore time-management strategies, and write mentoring philosophies. This is a terrific opportunity for new mentors to get off on the right foot, and for experienced mentors to share their wisdom.
