Spring Quarter Meeting Time and Topic!

Are you interested in exploring effective teaching in an interdisciplinary collaborative group of graduate students and postdocs?
Do you want to develop your own teaching skills and earn a certificate in the process?

Join the UC Davis 
Graduate Teaching Community!

This quarter’s theme:
Teaching Strategies Based on the Science of Learning
Mondays, 11-11:50 am in 1352 Surge 3

The Graduate Teaching Community (GTC) is an interdisciplinary collaborative group where graduate students and postdocs explore teaching practices. Together with peers, you tackle relevant teaching and learning issues in a supportive environment, freely discussing your ideas about teaching and learning, and developing your own personal teaching style. As part of this quarter’s theme, the group will be discussing recent research on how students learn in and out of classrooms, and strategies for teaching that are based on this science of learning.  We plan to spend one week reading and discussing a new paper in the field, and the following week discussing applications.

The GTC meets on a weekly basis, and your involvement with the group can range from a drop-in basis to earning a teaching certificate by weekly participation and leading one workshop.  Please feel free to contact Christy Cahill <ccahill@ucdavis.edu> or Rachel Anderson <rbanderson@ucdavis.edu> with any questions you may have.
