APS is offering a 5-day live course on Becoming an Effective Teacher where you get to:
- 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
- Network with senior faculty and other trainees in a relaxed and pleasant environment.
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.
The course will take place in Bar Harbor, ME at the College of the Atlantic, June 23-27, 2014. This course is subsidized by APS so you only pay $800 (APS members; non-members pay $900) for the course, meals, and accommodations in Bar Harbor. Additionally, FASEB MARC is offering a limited number of travel awards of up to $1,200 for underrepresented upper level graduate students, lower level postdoctoral fellows, and early career professionalsto help defray course registration and travel-related expenses associated with the course.
