Graduate Teaching Showcase

The Faculty Innovation Center, in collaboration with UT Libraries, and the Graduate School, present this year’s Graduate Teaching Showcase on Friday, March 29 from 9am-noon in PCL Learning Lab 1A/1B, and you are invited (see flyer below)!  Please RSVP by Wednesday, March 20th.  Enjoy some breakfast tacos and hear about the interesting issues and ideas that UT graduate students are encountering as instructors at UT.  Graduate students around the university competed for an opportunity to present quick and compelling talks about teaching.  The invite is open to anyone in the UT community who is interested in attending, and past attendees have included graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and staff.  There will be time for interaction and discussion between each talk, and attendees are welcome to join us for however long they are able (feel free to come and go if you have other obligations).  Learn more and RSVP here.
