During the 2018 Spring semester, I will be starting the certificate “Preparing for the Future Professoriate” with its namesake course. As part of this course, I will be loading weekly blog posts related to our discussions. I am very excited for this course and the courses in Contemporary Pedagogy and Communicating Science I will take in future semesters as my goal for the future is to research and teach at the University level. This will also be a unique opportunity to learn with and from graduate students from outside of my department and even outside of the sciences.
I’m looking forward to taking this time to develop my teaching philosophy and learn more about aspects of faculty life I have not yet encountered.
