DCAL, 102 Baker Library
Intended Audience(s): Faculty, Public, Students-Graduate
Categories: Workshops & Training
Registration required.

Have you ever been offered a chance to teach something that was outside your specialty? If you have ever been in this situation, or may be in the future, join us at this month’s LCFF with special guest and local science teacher Patty Murray. Patty has taught multiple difference science disciplines at Woodstock Union and Hanover High School. She joins us to share her insights regarding how to prepare for a lesson that is outside your specialty and tricks for on the spot discussion of confusing topics. Come bearing questions and stories as we hope this meeting will be both an opportunity to learn some tricks and a great discussion! 

In order to cultivate a community focused on teaching and learning amongst graduate students and postdocs, DCAL has established a Learning Community for Future Faculty (LCFF). The focus of this group is to share the rewards and challenges of college teaching, while digging a bit deeper into best practices and techniques for teaching.  The LCFF meets monthly on the 2nd Monday of the month.
