 Rice university’s nsf advance

Monday lunch presentation presented by Yousif Shamo at the 2011 NSF ADVANCE Workshop: Negotiating the Ideal Faculty Position, A Workshop for Underrepresented PhDs and Postdocs in Science, Engineering and Psychology September 1820, 2011
Why do we teach?
 So that individuals
learn
 To convey the excitement of our intellectual area
 To capture interest and imagination
 To ensure deep understanding
 To share our own research efforts
Who do we teach?
 Undergraduates (focus for today)
 Graduate Students (focus)/Postdocs
 Colleagues
 Your chair, your dean
 The public
 Program managers/patent office/others
Remember…
 Developing a good course takes time
 Learn good time management
 What students learn is
less than what you teach
 Don’t just try to cover the material
 Understand different learning styles
 Students have different ways of learning
 Use the resources you have available
 Be aware of accessibility requirements
What is the nature of your course?
 Large/medium/small enrollment?
 Lecturetype classroom or smaller more intimate setting?
 Majors? Upper level or lower level?
 Nonmajors?
Styles for these different types of courses are quite different!
Think about “active learning”
 Traditional/passive learning = lectures + exams
 Studentcentered, active learning can include (among many possibilities):
 Use of IClickers
 Online quizzes
 12 minute papers
 Student discussion and reporting
 Projects
Find out about resources
 Are IClickers available?
 What support for teaching is available?
 Are there faculty groups to discuss teaching?
 Are there online resources in your area for studentcentered learning?
 Are there sessions at professional meetings or specific meetings relevant to your area?
 Will your Chair pay for you to attend?
Know about yourself
 If you are asked what you’d like to teach…
 Do you really love a big lecture setting?
 Does a small group setting elicit a sense of excitement or a sense of dread?
 You may not have the opportunity to choose, but knowing what attracts you (and why) may help in dealing with your teaching assignment
Preparation is key
 Plan for 68 hours of preparation per class session the first year
 Get notes from the previous lecturer, but make the course your own
 Be familiar with the material (rehearse a lecture beforehand if you need to)
 Don’t wait until the last minute
 Not much room to improvise
 May be easier in smaller classes
Do’s and do not’s
 Do not expect perfection
 Do not expect eager, listening faces
 Do learn the names of your students if at all possible
 Do get feedback
during the semester
 You can adjust accordingly
 Do work the problems yourself
 Texts have typos and errors – read the text
Think very carefully about your syllabus
 Textbook information
 Policies/Grading information
 What makes up the grade? Is there a curve?
 Are there makeup exams?
 Don’t change point assignments midsemester — stick with the syllabus
 Think through the grading scheme — they’ll ask, so you might as well be ready!
Don’t make exceptions
 If you make an exception for an individual, it will be an exception for the entire course
 Do you allow —
 Regrading?
 Late tests? If not, how is grade determined if student was ill/had a death in family?
