Each spring, the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) partners with the Office of Postdoctoral Services to offer a noncredit course for Georgia Tech postdoctoral scholars, focusing on the fundamentals of teaching and learning. This noncredit course gives postdocs the opportunity to learn and apply principles of learner-centered teaching that are grounded in research about how people learn. You will have the opportunity to read and discuss how learning works, develop course materials in line with principles of good teaching practices, and give and receive feedback on what you produce. In addition, you will have the opportunity to synthesize your own experiences and views, in light of the course content, into a statement of teaching philosophy that can be used for future professional activities (e.g., on the academic job market).
Postdocs across campus are typically encouraged to apply and register in November/December, and the course itself runs from mid-January until mid-April.
