Fall Teaching Conference Roundtable - Teaching as an International Scholar


Wednesday, August 24, 2022, 11:30am to 12:30pm


Harvard Hall

Sarah Emory, Assistant Director, International Teachers and Scholars, Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning
With experienced international TFs

Are you a TF who got your undergraduate degree at an institution outside the U.S.? If so, you may have questions about teaching undergraduates at Harvard. How might the undergraduate experience here differ from your own experience? As an International TF, what do you need to know to navigate teaching in Harvard classrooms successfully? In this roundtable discussion, explore issues related to teaching across borders and boundaries, hear from experienced TFs on what they found useful when they started teaching, and discuss useful strategies for building connections with undergraduates. Note: Please note that the Teaching as an International Scholar module on the Hit the Ground Running Canvas site is a useful resource for international TFs interested in this discussion.

This session is part of the Fall Teaching Conference, which is designed to prepare new and experienced graduate student teachers for their roles as Teaching Fellows in the FAS. Pre-registration is required. Learn more here.
