These seminars feature structured conversations about teaching facilitated by a team of Wabash Center Consultants. Each Seminar opens with lunch and ends with dinner.
The seminars provide the opportunity to acquaint doctoral students with the Wabash Center and its resources so they can take advantage of our programming when they have teaching appointments. In addition, the Seminars will help establish student support networks and conversation across institutions.
Contribute to the formation of future teachers by guiding doctoral students in conversations about teaching, both in general and in specifics including:
- Capacity building for teaching careers
- Critically reflective teaching
- Design of learning experiences
- Teaching contexts
- Diversities of students or issues of diversity in the classroom
Participants will receive a $100 honorarium per session and an Amazon gift card worth $200 at the conclusion of the three seminars.
Participants must be students in doctoral programs in theology or religious studies at an accredited North American institution who are seeking a Ph.D., Th.D. or equivalent degree. Preference will be given to doctoral students who are in the final years of their doctoral work or who are currently teaching through adjunct, TA, or proctoring positions. The Teaching Seminars have a limit of up to 20 doctoral students per host city.
