The Director of CETL, Dr. Michele DiPietro, and the Graduate College Dean, Dr. Mike Dishman, will welcome graduate students to CETL’s 2018 Fall Graduate Teaching Orientation. This annual, full-day orientation introduces graduate students to fundamental principles of teaching and learning. This event is also an opportunity for graduate students to meet one another and to realize the many ways KSU supports them as teachers.
This combination of workshops and webinars for a graduate student audience is designed to address core competencies for graduate student teachers. Further, this series includes a webinar on well-being and two workshops to prepare for a job search: Preparing a Teaching Statement and a Teaching Demo. See the descriptions of each workshop below:
Several studies point out that graduate student teaching assistants have a significant impact on undergraduate learning and student retention ((Bettinger, Long, & Taylor, 2016, Myers, et al. 2012; El-Ghoroury, 2012). Graduate students’ enthusiasm for their discipline affects student learning. One study suggests that Undergraduates who take an introductory course taught by a graduate student are much more likely to major in that subject than those who took the same course from a full-time faculty member (Bettinger, Long, & Taylor).
