Are you aware of the training and support available to graduate students interested in teaching at UBC? Come to this poster session to see the different approaches that are being taken in departments and through central UBC services to support your development as a teaching assistant, future faculty member, and beyond.

The poster session will be followed by a Panel Discussion discussing, “The Impact of Teaching on Life and Career” from 12:45pm-2:45pm and a Networking Reception from 2:45pm-4:00pm.

Panel Discussion: The Impact of Teaching on Life and Career

How does teaching impact the life and career opportunities of graduate students? What are the possibilities ahead for graduate students interested in teaching? What can graduate students interested in teaching and learning do ‘now’ to advance their careers? Join us for a fascinating discussion with our panelists to explore these questions and others about teaching, learning, career and life for Grad Students at UBC.

The Networking Reception with invited guests is an opportunity to talk to the panelists, and each other, talk about teaching, and connect with opportunities to develop their teaching. Light refreshments provided.
