Journal club

Welcome to the Pedagogy Journal Club! 

The Office for Teaching and Learning invites you to participate in the Pedagogy Journal Club (PJC), a place to learn about evidence-based teaching methods with fellow Graduate Teaching Assistants and Postdocs. We engage in discussions about research-based articles related to pedagogy at the university level; explore pedagogical applications, strategies and techniques; and consider how we as instructors in higher education can implement such strategies in our courses. 

Most importantly, we learn from each other's experience in the classroom and continuously strive to improve our teaching.

Join us if you are interested in learning more - even if you're not currently teaching.

Meetings take place once a month on Tuesdays from 1-2pm in Room 150 of the OTL/Teaching Commons (1st floor, Purdy/Kresge Library), lunch will be provided if you register!
