Supporting Students Teaching Science Workshop 2014

Being situated in the practice of teaching is a powerful learning experience. Carleton science students experience this when they serve as teachers on and off campus (for example, as TAs, researchers, and volunteers in the community). In this workshop we will address the various ways that these students are utilized, equipped for, and supported in their teaching roles. We will further the discussion regarding ways in which we can work within and across the science disciplines to support student learning while immersed in action. Our guest, Dr. Laurie Langdon, co-director of the learning assistant (LA) program at the University of Colorado Boulder, will help facilitate our discussion and will share her experience at UC Boulder which has become a national model for learning in the practice of teaching. Stipend: $120 for both days.
