Welcome to the post-session discussion board: Let’s talk!
Objective: The most important part of any PROF-it (Professors-in-Training) seminar is what you do afterward. What meaning(s) did you make of the discussion? What do you plan to do with what you learned, either from our faculty leader or from your own reflections? The goal of this discussion board is to solidify and document your understandings and plans, and build upon what you’ve discovered with other participants as soon as possible after the session. We’ll try to keep the discussion going, so check back to see what others have contributed!
Session basics: Public Speaking in the Classroom, featuring Dr. Judith Pollack (COO at MycoInnovation and former Assistant Director of PROF-it and Postdoctoral Affairs, UMBC)
- For all TAs, graduate students interested in teaching, and postdocs
- Date: Friday, October 24, 2014
- Time: 12-2pm
- Location: Comm329 (UMBC Campus)
Make the most of your attendance at each PROF-it event! Discuss what you learned with other participants in the comments section below. Your participation in the PROF-it community boards counts toward possible recommendations when you apply to teaching fellowships with PROF-it partner institutions, and posting immediately following a session helps you to document your immediate reflections and plans for your own use in the future. We hope to see you again soon.
