Graduate & Professional Studies

Productive graduate student teaching retreat, May 17-18

The productive graduate student teaching retreat will be held on Wednesday, May 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Thursday, May 18, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Center for Teaching and Learning in Raynor Memorial Libraries 330B.

This productive retreat is designed to provide intentional space and time for individual and collective reflection about graduate students’ own current or future teaching practices (or both). It 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, like syllabi and teaching statements. 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. 

All food and drinks will be provided for all sessions over the course of two days (there is one registration as the expectation is you attend both days). Though this is not an overnight retreat, the Center for Teaching and Learning will host participants well as valued current and future members of our teaching community. 

View the flyer for details and registration information. Anyone with questions is encouraged to reach out to Dr. Melissa Shew, teaching associate professor of philosophy in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences.
