This dual-purpose workshop is for all graduate students and those who would like to know more about how to use library resources (databases, indexes) and digital tools to collect, organize, and review literature. How do these research skills and processes connect to teaching undergraduate students critical thinking and academic literacy skills? Participants will explore how to apply their research skills to improve undergraduate teaching.

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.

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).
