How to Broaden your Teaching Experience as a Graduate Student

Tuesday 3:00pm-4:15pm CC Building Circadian
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, especially for positions with stronger focus on teaching compared to research. 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.
