Emerging Mathematics Instructor Workshop
- Start Date: 05/16/2016
- End Date: 05/20/2016
University of Manitoba
This workshop aims to gather graduate students from across the Prairies (Manitoba and Saskatchewan) who are interested in issues of teaching and learning, and who plan to move into post-secondary teaching positions.
During the workshop, we will do reading, research, reflection, and writing about issues of undergraduate mathematics education. Participants will get exposed to a variety of literature from various publications relating to mathematics education, as well as guest speakers who have expertise in the field. Students will learn in an interactive environment, focused on open discussion and group work, and will be given the opportunity to practice their classroom techniques in front of an audience of their peers. At the close of the workshops, participants will have a deeper knowledge base of theoretical and practical issues of pedagogy and student learning, will have finished writing a teaching philosophy, and will be awarded a certificate of completion.
This workshop is limited to 18 graduate students or new faculty members from across the Prairies, with traveling students being housed on campus with lodgings and food (for all participating students, local or traveling) covered. There may also be limited support available for travel expenses for students from the University of Saskatchewan and University of Regina, depending on number of participants and funding available. Interested parties should send a letter of recommendation from their advisor or another faculty member, as well as a statement of intent outlining their reasons for wanting to participate in the program to organizer Darja Kalajdzievska by April 1, 2016.
