    This orientation session serves as a welcome and introduction to the Apprenticeship in Teaching Program by CNDLS and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

The Introduction to Teaching Resources is held at the beginning of each semester. Please note, if your class schedule prohibits your attendance at this orientation session, please let us know of your interest via email. You are still welcome to enroll in other workshops.

    AT Program: Teaching Assistant Core Principles Elective Workshop

    Teaching assistants fill a crucial and complicated role between students and faculty members. It can be challenging, negotiating relationships with all involved. Yet there are significant opportunities here, calling on you to build on your strengths as a student and developing scholar in order to become a professional teacher. To help you meet these challenges and opportunities, this workshop examines best practices drawn from the literature and experience, covers important resources for TAs here at Georgetown, and offers a space for participants to reflect on how to make the most of their experience as a TA.

    AT Program: Principles and Practices of Inclusive Pedagogy Elective Workshop

    In any discipline or field, a key goal (and challenge) is supporting the learning of all students despite their many differences. Inclusive Teaching refers to the ways in which pedagogy, curricula, and assessment are designed and delivered to engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant, and accessible to all. It means creating a learning environment where students, irrespective of their backgrounds, can maximize their own learning and the learning of others. This workshop will provide a space to discuss and explore principles and practices connected to inclusive teaching and learning, share strategies for applying these ideas to the classroom or other educational spaces, and think about who our students are, who we are, and how that informs what and how we teach. We will focus on pedagogical approaches that productively engage student identity and experience in the learning process and incorporate active learning techniques.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
