APSA’s Centennial Center Teaching Workshops provide a unique opportunity for faculty with similar teaching interests to refresh existing syllabi, develop new teaching modules, and share best practices. Led by co-facilitators Caroline Tolbert (University of Iowa) and Andy Rudalevige (Bowdoin College), this workshop will focus on sharing and developing teaching resources for introductory courses related to American government.
Approximately 15 faculty members will be invited to take part in the workshop. In addition to assessing fundamental texts and themes of IR-related courses, the program will include a series of roundtables in which each participant will share a specific teaching resource, class project, or course component with the group.
Through sharing and discussing a wide range of teaching materials, we expect participants to learn about high-impact practices for the classroom and extend scholarly networks. Examples of teaching resources or topics of presentation may include:
Innovative classroom projects
Civic engagement education
Community engagement projects
Use of social media
In-class exercises and assignments
Applicants should have at least 3 years’ experience teaching their own American government-related course (Intro to American Government, Political Parties, Congressional Politics, Presidency, etc). We encourage applications from faculty at a range of institutions, including universities and two- and four-year colleges.
Successful applicants will be notified by the end of March. Workshop registration fee will be $79.
