9:30-12:00 - Microteaching

  • The capstone of the TATTO summer course is Microteaching. You will be assigned to a class of 5-7 graduate students from various disciplines. You should arrive at the session on time and prepared to present a 10 minute lesson related to your academic discipline. Please note, you should be prepared to present a lesson that you would give in your discipline not a summary of your current or past research.
  • Students receive immediate feedback on your presentation from the TATTO instructor who leads your class and from your fellow students. The purposes of the exercise are (1) to practice teaching skills discussed in earlier TATTO sessions; (2) to provide you with peer review of your teaching performance; and (3) to introduce you to the fine art of offering constructive feedback to teaching colleagues. In short, you will be playing three roles—teacher, student, and peer-reviewer.

12:15-1:30 - Closing Session and Lunch - WSHCAB Plaza, 1440 Clifton Road

  • Student Panel featuring Ian Buller (Environmental Health Sciences), Amanda Reed (Chemistry), Molly Slavin (English)
