Gaining Teaching Experience beyond the Lab for Grad Students and Post-docs

Tuesday 1:30-3:15pm PT / 2:30-4:15pm MT / 3:30-5:15pm CT / 4:30-6:15pm ET Online
Round Table Discussion


Brendan Hanger, Colorado School of Mines

Most grad students and post-docs get their first exposure to teaching in labs, especially for introductory students. Whilst this can be a great experience, those wanting to pursue an academic career will benefit from getting more experience in other aspects of teaching to become a stronger job candidate. Post-doctoral researchers can also find that funding rules limit their opportunities. This discussion will allow participants to share their experience and develop strategies to gain that experience as lecturer or instructor of record, in order to strengthen your preparation for an academic career.

All roundtable discussions will take place online, via Zoom (unless otherwise noted). Participants will be sent links to the Zoom room and connection info will be posted below prior to the session start.
