Graduate students interested in developing their teaching and presentations skills will gain a basic understanding of how the brain works to learn information and several strategies to facilitate learning in the classes they teach. This workshop is for anyone interested in developing teaching skills: teaching assistants, teaching volunteers, conference presenters, and guest speakers. All graduate students are welcome. We will introduce you to practical skills you can use right away while also offering you resources and ideas for expanding your teaching repertoire.
