The New York Academy of Sciences
Presented by Science Alliance
Keynote Speaker: Sally Hoskins, City College of New York
Speakers: Jayne Rapper, NYUSoM; Nathalia Holtzman, Queens College; Tom Covotsos, The Beacon School
For many PhDs in the sciences being a teacher is part of the job. Whether you are teaching at a research university (while running your own lab), a primarily undergraduate institution or a high school you need to find the skills to make yourself successful. Our keynote speaker will address the current climate of science education and how to develop your own pedagogy. Our panel of experts will then discuss their best practices, answering questions such as:
- How do you teach and run a lab?
- How do you engage undergrad in research?
- What do I need to do to teach high school?
- How do you work with a TA?
- How do you balance all of your job responsibilities?
- What is the best piece of advice you can give to an incoming educator?
- What is the one thing you wish someone told you about your job?
- And more.
