Convener: Emily Gerstell, CTL Graduate Fellow, English
Location: Fisher Bennett Hall 330 (Graduate Student Lounge)
Summary: Join Alexine Fleck, Penn PhD alum and current professor at Philadelphia Community College, for a conversation on what she terms a “radical skills-based approach to teaching.” This workshop is designed to help us think about how your pedagogy is informed by the type of institution you’re at; the different concerns that arise at a non-research university; dealing with a more diverse student population (particularly in terms of academic preparedness); and the practical tips and tools that we can use to make our classroom experiences more rewarding for all members of the class. Lunch is served.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the English department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
