Those Who Can, Teach! Explore Teaching at the College Level

Friday, 14 February 2014: 11:45 AM-12:45 PM
Grand Ballroom F (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
Have you ever considered teaching science at the college level? In this interactive workshop, two professors and an administrator at one of the top 10 community colleges in the nation will discuss ways of helping you discern if teaching is the right move for you. We will start the workshop with an interactive self-reflection. We'll follow with an overview of how science is currently taught, including lecture, active learning, online, and laboratory. We will discuss the challenges and expectations for those entering the field of higher education with specific examples from biology, chemistry, and health sciences. Lastly, we will provide those considering teaching, and those who are already teaching, suggestions for professional development.
