Fordham PhDs and Educating Future Educators

Part of Fordham’s rigorous PhD program is its mandatory Teaching Tutorial. This class uses one-on-one training with a member of Fordham History’s professoriate to give PhD candidates valuable pedagogical training and classroom experience. The tutorial transitions PhDs from their first two years of coursework into their upcoming teaching assignments mandated by the PhD program’s funding package. We caught up with Michael Sanders, a PhD candidate who is finishing his second year at Fordham and recently completed his tutorial with Dr. Héctor Linda-Fuentes, to get his perspective on the experience.

Workshop on Teaching Philosophy Statements- Tuesday May 20 at 10AM

The History Department will host a workshop  on Developing Statements of Teaching Philosophy on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to be held in the Walsh Library Electronic Information Center (Computer Lab 044).  Light refreshments will be available before the workshop with lunch to follow.

Dr. Paul Beaudin, Associate Dean of the School of Arts and Science and Associate Professor of Education at Iona College, will offer a 3-hour workshop for graduate students.

The workshop will begin with a presentation on curriculum and pedagogy and then lead to discussions on the work of several educational theorists.  Participants will conduct on-the-spot, online research, discuss teaching philosophies with faculty and fellow graduate students, and then write and receive feedback on their own statements of teaching philosophy.
If you have already written a statement of teaching philosophy, please come and refine it further.  If you haven’t already written a statement, you will leave this workshop with a good working draft.  Either way, this workshop will develop your grasp of the philosophy of teaching and further prepare you for the job search and interview process.  Please come and participate in this important department workshop.
Please RSVP by May 14th.  Given that other departments have been invited to participate, this workshop is expected to fill up quickly.  Email your response to Johnathan Pettinato (pettinato@fordham.edu)
