The Johns Hopkins Teaching Academy offers a multiday teaching institute to doctoral students and postdocs to advance the development of university-level educators by enhancing classroom teaching skills. The institute will be packed with information, experiences, tools, and resources. It is our hope that participants will benefit from getting to know one another and working together in a learning community comprised of fellow future faculty preparing for their initial teaching assignments.
The virtual offering of this institute will be offered via Zoom on June 6-9.
Goal of the Teaching Institute
The goal of the Teaching Institute is to enable participants to be successful and confident classroom teachers. Participants will explore the benefits of active learning, ongoing assessment, and fostering inclusive classrooms. Participants will examine a variety of teaching practices and principles and will also participate in peer-evaluated micro-teaching exercises or choose to present a lesson plan that they develop as part of the Teaching Institute.
Themes of the Teaching Institute
The Teaching Institute is based on the concept of teaching-as-scholarship, which challenges instructors to bring to teaching the critical thinking, rigor, creativity, and spirit of experimentation that defines research in all disciplines. Teaching as scholarship embodies three core themes: active learning, assessment, and diversity.
