S52: Advice For the New/Returning Professor: What I Wish I Had Known Before I Started Teaching

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The intent of this symposium is to mentor rookie college/university professors through the sometimes-harrowing early years of college-level teaching. Talks will focus on the mechanics of teaching to a college audience and create a clearinghouse of anecdotes and ideas related to teaching science at the college/university level. Topics that may be addressed include: teaching to the Millenial generation (teacher v. student expectations); accommodating different learning styles in the same classroom; incorporating innovative and not-so-innovative teaching methods; teaching at a 2-year v. 4-year institution; small versus large class dynamics; balancing teaching and research; promotion and tenure issues.

Presider: Thomas Jose, Blinn College-Bryan Campus
