Teaching After Grad School
Call for Papers
2,000 word essay
Due June 15, 2020
We spend years in our doctoral programs, but how well do they prepare us for a faculty career in which teaching is the central activity? Leaving one’s graduate institution behind and beginning to teach in a new context involves making multiple adjustments. The Wabash Center Journal on Teaching is seeking short (2000 word) essays that describe and analyze a concrete example of making the transition from graduate student to teaching in new institution(s).
Unpack a critical incident in teaching that illustrates how your teaching position is different from your life as a graduate student.
- Narrate what happened
- How did your previous experience in your doctoral program prepare you to deal with this issue, or not?
- What advice do you have for new faculty or colleagues still in graduate school that will help them prepare for teaching in new contexts?
