Jacob Nagy, CTL Graduate Fellow, Chemistry

Wednesday, October 1 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: Who are you in the classroom? How can you be an authority in your field without seeming out of touch with your students? How can you create a comfortable atmosphere in your class while making sure your students take your subject seriously? Even though most of us are some version of ourselves in the classroom, we also know who we are in the classroom can also determine what students get out of class. This interactive workshop will pose a series of questions to help us better understand ourselves, and identify strengths and weaknesses with regards to being an instructor. In doing so, we will explore how to develop a teaching persona that is both genuine and effective in the classroom.
