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. You will meet other graduate students interested in the program and will find out about teaching resources available to you as a graduate student here at Georgetown. 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, let us know of your interest via email. You are still welcome to enroll in other workshops. While a required program component, the introductory session is not a prerequisite for enrollment and participation in other program events.

How does one go about designing a course? This workshop will offer an overview of specific course design approaches from the literature and how to put those approaches into practice. The workshop will be practically oriented, giving participants the opportunity to begin intentionally designing effective learning spaces for their future students. Please come with a specific course in mind that you have not yet—but one day will or would like to—teach.

Lectures and Active Learning - how do you run a course, and what, really, is the most effective way to teach? Lecturing is perhaps the most familiar form of university teaching. There's a great deal of talk about active learning. This workshop we'll focus on how both of these go together, on preparing effective lectures that are responsible to research and literature on the best practices of learning.

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.
