    AT Program: Introduction to Teaching Resources Required Workshop

    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. Although an orientation of sorts, the workshop primarily focuses on teaching resources available to you as a graduate student here at Georgetown as well as strategies for tackling common issues you might face. The Introduction to Teaching Resources workshop is held at the beginning of each semester. Please note, if your class schedule prohibits attendance at this workshop, you are still welcome to enroll in other workshops. While a required program component, this workshop is not a prerequisite for enrollment and participation in other program events.

    Teach the Speech Teach-In

    Each year, Georgetown faculty, staff, and students across campuses and schools read and reflect on one of Dr. King's speeches or texts during the the Spring semester. For 2021, the project will focus on Dr. King’s 1965 speech entitled “Our God is Marching On.” In honor of the late Congressman John Lewis, and in recognition of the pivotal role of students in the Civil Rights movement and current fight for racial justice, we also offer Congressman Lewis’ unedited speech from the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, given when he was head of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.

    The Teach-In will feature three mini-keynote addresses followed by a Q&A and dialogue among our three speakers. Our keynote speakers will offer remarks on the context of the United States at the time that Dr. King and Congressman Lewis offered their speeches and their reflections for today as they relate to racial justice. We'll begin with gathering time and music for the first half hour, with the official program beginning at 12:00 PM ET.

    This session is available to all Georgetown faculty and staff.

    Digital Learning Days: Preparing for Spring

    January’s DL Days will center around three daily themes: Semester Planning, Assessment, and Community-Building. Each day of programming will kick off with a panel highlighting the insights and experiences of our faculty and students from the fall, followed by focused sessions each afternoon to demonstrate techniques and allow for group conversations.

    Wednesday will focus on course planning and Canvas support, including a two-hour Syllabus Design Studio to work through primary syllabus components with individual assistance from CNDLS staff, as well as the opportunity to sign up for individual Canvas Consultations. Thursday focuses on assessment design and student access, and Friday will conclude with conversations on community building and engagement, both in and outside of the virtual classroom.

    These session are available to all Georgetown faculty and staff.

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.
