Teaching as Research Internship – April 13, 2021

Tuesday, 13 April 2021 - 2:00pm

Tue, April 13, 2021 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM UBC Vancouver Campus. TAR internships are designed to give interns authentic teaching experiences and to apply their understanding of evidence-based teaching practices in the classroom or in an informal science education or outreach setting. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, together with their teaching partner, identify a challenge to student learning in the classroom, develop new teaching resources or approaches, and test if this new approach did improve student learning.

This series of workshops will prepare applicants of the TAR program to implement an educational research project in their discipline regardless of previous experience. Those who are not intending to submit a TAR application but are interested in developing their understanding of SoTL research are also welcomed to attend.

Interested students can devise their own TAR projects, or can create TAR projects around existing Scholarship of Teaching and Learning projects (see the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund project descriptions and faculty proposed TAR projects for existing projects). Eligible teaching partners are UBC faculty or instructors, local college instructor, or outreach partners.

All UBC graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are eligible according to the program requirements outlined below can apply for a TAR project. Applicants whose application are accepted will be able to conduct their project as TAR Interns.

The TAR program is available to both graduate students and postdocs, but only graduate students are eligible for the award. The deadline this year for TAR applications for the award will be May 15th.
