Prepare for a future teaching career with University 400C Future Faculty Preparation Seminar

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars and fellows who are considering a career in teaching can sign up for the University 400C Future Faculty Preparation Seminar as a first step in their process. UNIV 400 C is a non-credit seminar.

Taught by two experienced teachers and a seasoned graduate teaching assistant, this seminar offers participants the chance to learn effective teaching strategies useful across major disciplines. Through small group discussions, journal assignments and micro-teaching sessions, participants can learn and try out successful teaching strategies.

Participants will be expected to read assignments, complete a weekly journal, plan and teach a mini lesson, and participate fully in all discussions and online sessions.

This 12-session seminar will take place Tuesdays from Sept. 12 through Dec. 5. Two sections are available: from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., or from 1 to 2:15 p.m.

The final two weeks will guide students through online teaching techniques. These final weeks will be asynchronous, online sessions.

Enrollment is limited to 17 students per section.

A free textbook is provided.

Graduate students will enroll via the Student Information System. Postdoctoral scholars and fellows should email for registration instructions.
