Call for Participants

May 4-7, 2006
Kalamazoo, Michigan

"Teaching for Dummies, or, What I Wish My Department Had Told Me: Pedagogy
and Graduate Student Teaching"

This panel, sponsored by the Medieval Academy of America Graduate Student
Committee, will address the issues faced by graduate students as they
teach a variety of medieval topics to undergraduates. Possible topics
might include how to relate the medieval period to popular culture and
current events, teaching classes you feel unqualified to teach, teaching
far outside the medieval period, designing your own course, teaching
well-established courses, and teaching using multimedia and technology.
These are just suggestions, however, and panelists are encouraged to speak
on issues that relate in any way to teaching as a graduate student.

We are looking for panelists from a wide range of disciplines and with
graduate student experience teaching medieval material in any of a variety
of situations. If you would like to participate in this panel at
Kalamazoo, and have not participated in a MAA–GSC sponsored panel before, please contact Patricia Kiernan at The CFP deadline
is September 15, 2005.
