Mentored Discussions of Teaching (MDT)

Modified: September 5, 2017

Mentored Discussions of Teaching (MDT) is a one-quarter program where graduate students and postdocs learn about and discuss teaching and learning in the STEM and SBE fields.  This Fall quarter, the program begins on September 25th. 

The program is flexible and built to accommodate the busy lives of graduate students and postdocs.  Participants are matched with a faculty mentor to meet with and observe several sessions of their course.  Participants also attend three group meetings where they discuss literature about teaching and learning and share their perspectives from their teaching observations.  More information about the program requirements and meeting dates can be found on their website.

If you are interested in participating in MDT during the Fall quarter, please fill out this short application survey by September 11th.  Please direct any questions to Lauren Woods (Postdoctoral Fellow, Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching).  

CIRTL at Northwestern is part of a nationwide network of research universities.  Their programs prepare graduate students and postdocs for success in a wide range of academic careers in STEM disciplines.  For more information about them and their programming please visit their website
