Convener: Tanya Weerakkody, CTL Graduate Fellow, Neuroscience
Location: 215 Stemmler Hall
Summary: This workshop will provide strategies for making scientific content accessible and engaging to audiences that are new to neuroscience. Professors Sharon Thompson-Schill and Geoffrey Aguirre will share insight on how to structure a single talk or entire course for novices. They will further discuss how didactic tools, use of technology, and teaching style can be best implemented to preserve scientific rigor without compromising clarity of subject matter.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Neuroscience department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
