The PFF Teaching Clinic helps you to understand the dynamics of facilitating learning and prepares you to write a lesson plan for a teaching demonstration. Through analysis of the teaching-learning process, you develop a vocabulary for understanding, observing, and reflecting on your teaching in specific and productive ways. The Clinic also helps you strategically plan a full lesson, with a focus on developing a detailed 30-minute teaching plan that you can use in your Teaching Demonstration item for the PFF Practicum, and in any job application process that requires a teaching demonstration. To complete your Teaching Clinic item, you must submit and get approval for your Lesson Plan.
 

Workshop Schedule

All PFF workshops are free. If you are not working toward the PFF Certificate in College Teaching but are still interested in developing your knowledge and skills as a teacher-scholar, you may attend the workshops. All workshops are open to students, faculty, and staff of the 7Cs and to the public.
