Schedule for Spring Quarter

Theme for Spring Quarter 2016:
Structuring Your Classroom
Mondays, 11:00AM - 11:50AM in 1360 The Grove (Surge 3)

The Graduate Teaching Community is a group of graduate and post-doctoral students at UC Davis. We meet on a weekly basis to discuss teaching practices for undergraduate education, address common teaching challenges, and to just have fun! In addition, this quarter the CEE is also sponsoring snacks for each meeting and a celebratory luncheon at the end of the quarter. Participation in the GTC can result in a certificate that you can add to your teaching portfolio and provide a great talking point for job interviews. 

This quarter, our theme for weekly meetings is "Structuring Your Classroom".  During our organizational first meeting, being able to tackle classroom preparation and everyday occurrences seemed to be the main focus of GTC attendees. This quarter's topics include

April 11th:
 Differentiating Difficulty (Lower division vs. higher division vs. grad classes)
April 18thTeaching Technology
April 25th: Methods to check for understanding
May 2ndUCD Teaching Objectives
May 9th: The Flipped Classroom
May 16th: Effective Assessment Techniques
May 23rd: Lunch Party!

Everyone is welcome to attend one or all of our meetings. Earning a certificate requires you to lead (or co-lead) one week's session, but you can come out to as many meetings as work for you!

If you can't make this quarter's meeting times but want to be kept informed, continue to check out our blog.  You can also get on our email list by either going to https://groups.google.com/group/gtc-ucdavis, or by emailing one of the co-facilitators and requesting to be added.

Looking forward to a great quarter!
