    AT Program: The Teaching Portfolio Required Workshop

    This workshop explains and demonstrates how to document and reflect on the knowledge and skills gained from your teaching experience through developing a professional teaching portfolio. We will illustrate the iterative and continuing nature of portfolio construction by demonstrating the revision process used in writing and revising a teaching philosophy statement. Participants will leave the workshop with a template for building their own teaching portfolios, as well as examples to support them in writing their own teaching philosophy statement.

    AT Program: Syllabus Design Required Workshop

    Designing a syllabus is much more than picking out your readings. In this workshop we will cover the fundamental components and best practices of good syllabus design through discussion and a hands-on opportunity to practice “backwards design.” Participants should bring a syllabus or ideas for a syllabus to the workshop to develop and receive informal feedback from the group. NOTE: THERE WILL BE A TEACHING TASK WRITING SESSION THE HOUR IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE END OF THIS WORKSHOP.

    Religious Inclusivity in the Classroom

    While Georgetown is a Jesuit university, its students hail from a wide variety of cultural and religious backgrounds that influence their experiences of life on campus and in the classroom. What types of issues do Georgetown faculty face when trying to make their courses welcoming to students from a variety of religious traditions? How do we support students’ sense of belonging and connection in our classrooms and best address issues when students feel alienated? In this workshop, we will be joined by Rabbi Gartner, Imam Hendi, and Brahmachari Sharan from Campus Ministry, who will offer their wisdom and expertise, rooted in their relationships with Georgetown students as well as their own experiences. Lunch will be served.

    AT Program: Technology Tools Elective Workshop

    The use of technology in the classroom is inescapable. Undoubtedly you’ve heard of a host of new tools folks are using. Which tools are supported at Georgetown? What do they do? How might one effectively use them to support their teaching goals? Thankfully, a few of our experts from CNDLS are leading this workshop to provide guidance in these areas and help you get your hands dirty working with them. NOTE: Please bring your laptop; this will be a hands-on workshop.

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.
