Teaching Research Methods to Undergraduates

Dr. Meggie Crnic, History & Sociology of Science
Nov 04 2019 : 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Cohen 392
Alexis Rider, CTL Graduate Fellow, History & Sociology of Science

Research is a major component of thinking and writing critically, and is a skill that undergraduates are only just beginning to develop. In this workshop, Dr. Meggie Crnic, who teaches the Capstone seminar, will discuss how she helps students construct a senior thesis. The aim of this seminar is to show TAs the skills that students are still developing even in their senior year at Penn, and to enable TAs to begin sowing the seeds of robust research skills in students before they reach the Capstone class. 

All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the History & Sociology of Science department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.

Intent and Innovation in Course Design

Professors Ada Kuskowski and Oscar Aguirre-Mandujano, History
Nov 06 2019 : 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
College 209
Anna Todd, CTL Graduate Fellow, HIstory

Intentional course design establishes the tone for a class and sets students up for success. Innovative approaches, including global perspectives, object-based teaching, and thematic schemas, offer the opportunity to reach students from different disciplines and to speak to a variety of learning strengths and interests. In this workshop, we will discuss the considerations that shape course design, how to think about traditional classes in creative and unexpected ways, and strategies to employ and talk about course design on the job market. 

All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the History department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
