 The Provost’s Conversations on Teaching and Learning are open to all faculty members, and offer the opportunity to reflect and share about the teaching and learning process.

On Thursday, October 11, Dr. Elaine Justice will lead a Conversation about “Passing the Academic Torch:  Mentoring Graduate Student Teachers” from 12:30-1:30 in the Learning Commons Conference Room at Perry Library.

Dr. Justice is Steering Committee Chair for the ODU Preparing Future Faculty Program.  She was involved in the early development of the Graduate Teaching Assistant Institute and continues to present at the GTAI every semester. She also offers a course for graduate student teachers in the Psychology Department.  

In her Conversation, Justice will focus on the need for professional development activities for the graduate students who will become tomorrow’s faculty.  While the nature of graduate education emphasizes research productivity, teaching is an integral part of most academic positions.  Justice will highlight the resources currently available at ODU and will discuss ways to build the mentoring of graduate students in teaching and service activities into their graduate programs.
