Conference Presentation Opportunity

Have you tried something new in your tutorial, lab, or classroom that you want to share? As part of the May 10th Spring Perspectives on Teaching Conference (registration is now open!), we are putting together a panel of graduate students willing to share the difference it made when they implemented a new teaching strategy or developed a new teaching resource. Did you try a new active learning strategy, re-envision your office hours, create a new resource for your students, find a new way to give feedback, or something else entirely? We want to hear about your teaching innovations both big and small. Click here to fill out an application. Applications close on April 4th by 9:00am.
