Developing Our Teacher Identities

Primary tabs

Using reflection to challenge patterns of teaching & learningA research findings-inspired workshopAs we try teaching in new ways, our self-conceptions as teachers change. However, we rarely stop to consider what brought us here and how we have changed as teachers. This reflection is important as we get ready to take on more learner-centered challenges. In this workshop, we will engage in creative reflective activities to (re/)consider our identities as teachers. Activities will be interspersed with recent research findings about TAs’ evolving conceptions of themselves as teachers as they took ownership for inquiry teaching practices. Inquiry teaching more closely approximates how science is practiced by scientists: problem solving by developing and testing hypotheses. These research findings may inform reflective practices to spur further development of our teacher selves. Participants will leave with strategies for reflective practice to enhance their own teaching as well as to share with TAs.  Facilitated by:Cara Gormally, Ph.D.Director of Introductory Biology LabsSchool of Biology Lunch will be provided To register, please go to: http://www.cetl.gatech.edu/civicrm/event/info?id=104&reset=1
