Upcoming Teaching Seminars
Wednesday, March 18, 4:30–7:00pm
A-70 Cyert Hall
In this interactive workshop, participants teach a 5-minute lesson and receive feedback on their teaching from the other participants and the workshop leaders. These lessons are videotaped. (Note: This workshop can count toward the Future Faculty Program's teaching feedback consultation requirement, but not the seminar requirement. Attending the workshop and following up to watch and discuss the video of your lesson with an Eberly colleague can substitute for one of the two teaching feedback consultations required for the Future Faculty Program.)
