    AT Program: Designing for Thriving in College Classes Elective Workshop

    This workshop will introduce three underlying concepts of thriving during college—academic thriving, interpersonal thriving, and intrapersonal thriving—based on the work of Laurie Schreiner and others. We will look together at some examples of how classroom work can support students’ thriving, and we will then work in pairs or small groups on how to apply these concepts to your own course designs.

    AT Program: Syllabus Design Required Workshop

    Far more than a merely logistical document, the syllabus is often an instructor's opening move in their efforts to build a relationship with and shape students' learning experience. It is also the concrete public artifact that makes an instructor's course design visible. 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.”

    AT Program: Introduction to Teaching Resources Required Workshop

    This orientation session serves as a welcome and brief 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. Numerous difficulties arise as one teaches students, and the workshop's main message is: don't do it alone! Become familiar with the network of centers and the myriad resources available to help you — including other graduate students and the staff of the AT Program itself. 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 Spring semester. For 2022, the project will focus on Dr. King’s 1965 "I Have a Dream" speech. Faculty and staff are invited to attend our annual event in Copley Formal Lounge or via Zoom. We will begin with a community-building gathering and music for the first half hour (both in person and on Zoom) with the official program beginning at 12:00 PM. The Teach-In will feature two short keynote addresses, a student reflection, and a facilitated dialogue among our three speakers.

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.
