“STEP*ping Up: From Students to Teachers”
*Shifting the Educational Paradigm

The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce a new teaching series designed by graduate students for graduate students. The purpose of this series is to provide graduate students who are teaching now or who plan to teach in the future with a forum for the open consideration of a variety of teaching-related topics.
The fall series will focus on practical concerns in the classroom, including classroom management, instructional strategies, and critical thinking. These interactive workshops seek to give participants concrete ideas to use in their classrooms.

Fall 2011 workshops will be held in CTLT’s Resource Commons on the following Thursdays, from 3-4pm:

September 8 – Classroom Management

October 6 – Instructional Strategies

November 10 – Critical Thinking

These workshops are open to graduate students from every department. While no preparation is required to attend, the facilitators encourage participants bring any instructional materials they have that are related to the topic under consideration. These will be used to help provide examples and generate discussion. No materials are required to attend, however, and no registration is required either. Just come take advantage of this opportunity to learn together!

Questions about the series may be directed to either Elizabeth Zold (emzold@ilstu.edu  438-7903) or Gretchen Frank (gmfrank@ilstu.edu  438-2847).
