The Graduate Student Workshop Series is designed to connect graduate students across disciplines to the support services and expertise available in the University Libraries, the Writing Center, the University Institute for Teaching and Learning, and the University Center for the Advancement of Teaching. Whether you are coming to The Ohio State University from an undergraduate program, a smaller institution, or an extended break in your academic career, we can guide you through the most helpful resources on campus as you begin your research and prepare to teach at OSU. In addition, the series is an opportunity to meet other graduate students outside your department. Returning graduate students are also welcome. Light refreshments will be provided. All sessions will occur in the Research Commons, 18th Avenue Library.
University Institute for Teaching and Learning and University Center for the Advancement of Teaching (Wednesday, September 13, 4 – 6 p.m.)
Staff from the Institute and the Center will lead focused conversations on topics related to enhancing your teaching, including strategies for livening class discussion, creating assignments and designing assessments to meet course learning objectives, and documenting your teaching.
