Johns Hopkins University Teaching Institute (In Person)
June 1 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT
The Johns Hopkins Teaching Institute is a multi-day teaching institute designed to help doctoral students and post-docs become successful and confident classroom teachers. Participants will explore the benefits of active learning, ongoing assessment, and fostering inclusive classrooms. Participants will examine a variety of teaching practices and principles and will also participate in peer-evaluated micro-teaching exercises or choose to present a lesson plan that they develop as part of the teaching institute. By the end of the institute, participants will:
- Explore and test multiple teaching methods that engage and assess diverse students;
- Develop skills and strategies to continue growing as reflective instructors who employ evidence-informed teaching methods;
- Identify strategies that improve student learning outcomes for all students;
- Work in small groups to share ideas, build new skills, and cultivate partnerships in teaching and learning;
- Create a peer-reviewed lesson plan;
- Present their lesson plan or facilitate a micro-teaching exercise to their peer group.
This in-person institute meets daily from Wednesday, May 31 through Friday, June 2. Daily sessions run from 9AM to 3PM, with scheduled breaks. Participants can see a detailed schedule upon registration.
Participants are expected to continue working on their lesson plan and micro-teaching activity outside of daily sessions.
