Teaching Toolkit for LABS

This interactive one-day workshop for doctoral assistants and post-docs targets the development of skills to maximize student learning.

By focusing on LABS, this workshop will develop your ability to:

  • Identify the full range of scientific inquiry skills and evidence-informed strategies for teaching them
  • Adapt lab protocols to increase the degree of scientific inquiry and enhance transferable learning
  • Prepare your interactions with students to help them develop autonomy and critical thinking in the lab
  • Provide feedback (& grades) to students which supports learning Organized through “hands-on” activities based on science content, this workshop allows you to practice and get feedback on evidence-informed teaching skills rather than just hearing about them.

Note: This workshop is independent but complementary to the other 3 in the series. You are welcome to attend as many as you like, in any order you like.

Teaching Toolkit for EXERCISES

This interactive one-day workshop for doctoral assistants and post-docs targets the development of skills to manage classroom interactions and to design exercises to maximize student learning.
By focusing on EXERCISES, this workshop will develop your ability to:

  • Help students to analyse problems in order to be better at solving them
  • Design exercises to promote the development of a high level of competence
  • Get students to think for themselves, instead of waiting for an answer
  • Develop students’ quantitative problem solving skills
Organized through “hands-on” activities based on science content, this workshop allows you to practice and get feedback on evidence-informed teaching skills rather than just hearing about them.

Teaching Toolkit for PRESENTING

This interactive one-day workshop for doctoral assistants and post-docs targets the development of skills to maximize student learning.

By focusing on EXPLAINING, this workshop will develop your ability to:

  • Structure a lesson that is consistent with the learning intentions
  • Be confident in your ability to explain complex ideas clearly.
  • Encourage participation and respond to student questions.
  • Prepare the lesson supports adequate to your teaching scenario (black/ white board, slides, simulations, etc.)
Organized through “hands-on” activities based on science content, this workshop allows you to practice and get feedback on evidence-informed teaching skills rather than just hearing about them.
