Connect with Cutting-Edge Pedagogy

Lawrence Tech is proud to partner with Wayne State University to transform the future of engineering and STEM education. In partnership with KCP and WSU's NIH B.E.S.T. Grant, Lawrence Tech is able to offer a unique opportunity to qualified students.

This opportunity is open to any graduate student in in Wayne State University’s KCP/AGEP/IMSD or B.E.S.T. programs.

Participants will attend a three-day workshop on the Lawrence Tech campus, and experience a variety of pedagogical techniques (including active and collaborative learning, problem-based learning and course-based undergraduate research). Students will use these skills to develop and deliver a teaching demonstration (on a topic of the participant’s choice), that can be worked into a larger module.

Many job interviews at PUIs will include a teaching demonstration. Often, this demonstration will expected to be for a freshman/introductory-level class, and on a topic relevant to that course (generally not the candidate’s direct research topic). Participants should think of this workshop and subsequent module development and deployment as a chance to receive feedback from experienced educators.

In addition, the workshop team will connect workshop participants with opportunities to interact with students whenever possible. Past opportunities have included mentoring activities, guest lecturing, adjunct instruction, etc.

The workshop will take place in May 14-16, 2018, and the student-interaction opportunities will take place anytime between the workshop to the following year or two.
