Teaching Your Research

University of Iowa Main Library, 1022 LIB

Abstract: In this session, participants will learn some of the basics of instructional design. Participants will accomplish the following: defining a learning goal within the domain of his or her research area, developing a quality learning objective for it, and then applying an appropriate teaching method that could be used to teach that objective. The skills participants will learn in this workshop will help improve the quality of research presentations, and provide a generalizable approach for tackling any teaching problem participants may encounter as future faculty.
