Importance of transferrable teaching skills: Opinion


In an article for Inside Higher Ed, Lauren Easterling argues that graduate students should develop teaching and learning skills regardless of their career path. Teaching skills apply to a wide variety of roles in the academy, Easterling explains: Faculty train new student researchers, senior administrators train junior administrators, professionals at private corporations provide employees with continuing education, and more. To develop these skills further, she encourages graduate students to look for teaching and learning centres at their institutions, take part in related events or programs, and network with people engaged in teaching-skills related work to develop these teaching skills.
