Connect with Cutting-Edge Pedagogy
Lawrence Tech is proud to partner with Wayne State University to transform the future of engineering and STEM education. In partnership with KCP and WSU's NIH B.E.S.T. Grant, Lawrence Tech is able to offer two extraordinary opportunities to qualified students.
This opportunity is open to any graduate student in in Wayne State University’s KCP/AGEP/IMSD or B.E.S.T. programs.
Participants will experience a variety of pedagogical techniques (including active and collaborative learning, problem-based learning and course-based undergraduate research) and use that new found knowledge to develop a 1-2 hour module (on a topic of the participant’s choice) which the participant will deploy in a grant-sanctioned setting.
Many job interviews at PUIs will include a teaching demonstration. Often, this demonstration will expected to be for a freshman/introductory level class, and on a topic relevant to that course (generally not the candidate’s direct research topic). Participants should think of this workshop and subsequent module development and deployment as a chance to receive feedback from experienced educators.
The workshop will take place in May 2015, and the teaching opportunities will take place anytime between the workshop to the following year.
