The Bok Center's staff and fellows routinely offer one-off workshops on an array of topics, ranging from how to plan for the first day of section to how to assemble a teaching portfolio for the job market. We are happy to visit your department, your department's pedagogy course, or work with the teaching staff of individual courses, and can tailor the message and the activities of the workshop to the particular needs of your group.
Among our most-requested workshops are:
- Microteaching *
- The First Day: Building Rapport and Setting the Tone
- The Multiplicity of Harvard Undergraduates (featuring our Undergraduate Pedagogy Fellows)
- Effective Lesson Planning
- Active Learning
- Teaching Across Cultures
- Public Speaking
- Communicating your Research
- Responding to Student Writing (with the Harvard Writing Project)
- Collecting and Responding to Early Feedback
- Classroom Assessment Techniques
- Syllabus Design
- Preparing a Teaching Statement
* Microteaching is organized practice teaching, with the goal of giving instructors confidence, support, and feedback by letting them try out among friends and colleagues a short slice of what they plan to do with their students.
