‘Cultivating pedagogy in community: a productive virtual retreat for graduate students’ will be May 20-21

The Center for Teaching and Learning and the Graduate School will host a virtual retreat for graduate students on Thursday, May 20, from 10 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., and Friday, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.  

Register for Thursday, May 20 

Register for Friday, May 21. 

All graduate students who are currently teaching or expect to be teaching in graduate school or as future faculty are welcome to attend this retreat. 

This productive retreat provides dedicated time for individual and collective reflection about students’ own current or future teaching practices and is also designed with practical outcomes in mind. Graduate students should leave this retreat equipped with practical knowledge about creating and using different teaching-related documents. They will have an opportunity to connect with their peers, faculty members and teaching consultants from the Center for Teaching and Learning throughout the retreat.  

This working retreat has four primary goals: 

  • To provide meaningful time for graduate students to reflect individually on their current and future teaching practices 
  • To equip graduate students with essential teaching tools and documents such as, writing or revising teaching and DEI statements, and reviewing and crafting syllabi through practical workshops 
  • To offer opportunities for dialogue about teaching between faculty and graduate students across the university 
  • To deepen the graduate student teaching community at Marquette
