Hi everyone,

For those of us wishing to continue on in academia, demonstrating commitment to teaching is a must for applications for grants, faculty positions, etc.  So, we are organizing an Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) at TRIUMF for postdocs run by the Centre or Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL).  Those completing the workshop will

  *   Receive an internationally recognized ISW certificate
  *   Receive a CIRTL Associate certificate recognized in the US and Canada
  *   Have access to followup seminars on, e.g., writing a teaching statement for faculty applications

The workshop spans 3 8-hour days.  Here is a description of the workshop on the CIRTL website:

The workshop consists of teaching practice, theory application, and topical sessions specifically relevant to postdocs. During the workshop you will teach three short lessons and receive feedback from your peers. You will work closely with peers and trained facilitators. In this supportive atmosphere you will have a chance to begin to develop new teaching skills, to enhance existing skills, and/or to try new and challenging ideas.

If you are interested in participating in the ISW, please fill out this doodle poll below with your availability and we will try to find a time for the  workshop that works for everyone.

 For more information on CIRTL, see their website or the attached slides which were presented at TRIUMF a few weeks go.
