Workshop Description:

Graduate scholarship work often prioritizes research over teaching responsibilities, but the two are not mutually exclusive. Our workshop explores how graduate students can frame their teaching responsibilities at Northwestern as professional development toward their career. This includes using your experiences as a teaching assistant to inform your job market teaching philosophy, drawing from pedagogical literature to inform your practice, and using your classroom to develop research questions.

Workshop Facilitators:

Matt Nelsen is a PhD Candidate within the Department of Political Science. He studies the ways in which civic education courses shape the political attitudes and behaviors of high schoolers along the lines of race and ethnicity. He is currently a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the Searle Center.

James Proszek is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Rhetoric and Public Culture. He studies how digital technologies influence democratic discourse and civic education. He completed the Teaching Certificate Program and is currently a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the Searle Center.
