The transition from graduate student to professor comes with many challenges, from issues of authority to changing responsibilities and work patterns. On a more fundamental level, Penn students in particular often wonder how to translate their training as graduate TA’s to the range of teaching opportunities they might pursue after the PhD. In this workshop, Professor Jared Farmer will share his experiences teaching in a variety of institutions outside of the Penn and offer advice to graduate students looking ahead to the academic job market. The goal of this workshop will be to prompt TA’s to anticipate the different learning environments they might find themselves in and begin to think through strategies to navigate that process more smoothly and the steps they can take now to prepare.
Counts toward the CETLI Teaching Certificate. This event grows out of concerns in the History department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
