Opportunity to Instruct an Undergraduate STEM Seminar Course


Laptop & apple image

Teaching opportunity at UF in your own research area: Design & teach an undergraduate STEM seminar course – Tue & Thu evenings, June 13 – July 23, 2019.

Co-instruct an evening seminar course on a topic of your choice during the Student Science Training Program (SSTP), a STEM research-centered program in which students work in labs for ~30 hours/week. There are 8 sections (18 contact hours each) of this seminar course; each section has 10-12 SSTP students co-instructed by 2-4 grad students/post docs.  Typical class format is the co-instructors introduce the topic, then guide the SSTP students as they present and discuss related research papers, although the format may certainly vary according to the topic and your own creative approach.

The seminar course dates are Thu June 13 – Tue July 23. The course meets 1.5 hours on Tue/Thu evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 PM (except for July 4). There is a total of ~18 contact hours over the seven weeks; the SSTP students may earn 3 college credits. Some of the colleges offer graduate credit for you, as well.

You choose your co-instructor(s) and research topic.
