LUNCH and LEARN
Faculty Conversations on Teaching
In response to requests from Hopkins faculty, the Center for Educational Resources launched a new program, Lunch and Learn - Faculty Conversations on Teaching in the 2015-2016 academic year. These casual, monthly, one-hour discussions over lunch spotlighted experienced faculty sharing innovative teaching practices and demonstrating how others might implement similar strategies. Below are listed the topics with links to the blog posts reporting on each of the events.
The 2015-2016 Lunch and Learn Series:
Introducing Reveal: an image annotation tool

Graduate student opportunity
Are you a Ph.D. student or Post-doctoral Fellow considering an academic career?
Would you like to improve your teaching skills and increase your competitive edge in today’s challenging job market?
Applications are now being accepted for the following programs:
The Teaching Academy
The Preparing Future Faculty Teaching Academy seeks Ph.D. students and Post-doctoral Fellows from across Johns Hopkins who wish to acquire instructional skills for academic careers that will involve teaching. Students should be in or beyond their second year of doctoral work. Through this initiative, participants will obtain an overview of pedagogy, explore different educational models, acquire teaching and assessment skills, and work with faculty teaching mentors in a classroom, online course, or laboratory environment.
Applications for the Teaching Academy are now being accepted. If you are interested in this program, please apply by going to the Preparing Future Faculty Teaching Academy website application page or email, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The program is a supplementary professional development activity that is designed to complement, not detract from, participants’ research obligations. To ensure that, students and postdocs are asked to submit a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) form signed by their research advisor along with their application.
Teaching-as-research (TAR) is the deliberate, systematic, and reflective use of research methods by instructors to develop and implement teaching practices that advance the learning experiences and student learning outcomes. Through a CIRTL grant aimed at fostering this approach to instruction, Johns Hopkins has developed a fellowship program to support teaching-as-research projects. Open to STEM graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, TAR fellowships carry a stipend of $1,250.
For TAR projects conducted in the 2016 Spring or Summer terms, apply by December 11th, 2015.
