This course is designed for doctoral students primarily and is intended to prepare you for teaching in a top research institution. Most teaching prep courses focus on what goes on inside a classroom: how to lead a discussion, how to elicit participation, and the like. Although this course will cover that material, it will add a significant unique component: how to prep outside the classroom. Examples of topics in this realm include how to negotiate your teaching load, how to develop a repertoire of courses to cut down on course prep time, and how to market low-enrollment courses. Students from across the university are invited to join this course.
