Teaching Ph.D.s How to Teach

Doctoral training hasn’t traditionally been concerned with whether future faculty members are good teachers. New programs are meant to change that.

More colleges are making it a priority to teach future faculty members how to teach.

Today’s minefield of political and social issues requires even the most experienced educators to step carefully.

Universities often offer orientations and workshops, though not all programs are mandatory.

Faculty members tell us what they wished they had learned or are grateful they did learn about teaching when they were doctoral students.
