Working retreat for graduate students, May 29

The Center for Teaching and Learning will host a retreat for graduate students on Sunday, May 29, from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. in CTL in Raynor Memorial Library, R330B.  

This day-long productive retreat is designed to provide intentional space for individual and collective reflection about students’ own current or future teaching practices. It is also designed with practical outcomes in mind.  

Graduate students should leave this retreat equipped with practical knowledge about creating and using teaching statements and statements about diversity, equity and inclusion. Graduate students 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: 

  1. To provide meaningful time for graduate students to reflect individually on their current and/or future teaching practices.
  2. To equip graduate students with essential teaching tools and documents (Writing or revising teaching and DEI statements, reviewing and crafting syllabi) through practical workshops.
  3. To offer opportunities for dialogue about teaching between faculty and graduate students across the university.
  4. To deepen the graduate student teaching community at Marquette.

Food will be provided. Register online by Thursday, May 5.
