  • Work directly with a highly experienced teacher on developing your teaching skills
  • Join in discussions and activities that focus on the major areas involved in teaching

The course is designed for upper level graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career faculty who want to develop their teaching skills. Pre- and post-workshop assignments will be required, as well as those that are part of the in-person course. As part of the course, students will develop a micro-teach demonstrating their understanding of effective teaching.

You do not need to be an APS member to apply, but you do need to be a graduate student, postdoc, or early career investigator who has the time to devote to the course before and after the live course. Members receive discounted registration.
