Stanford Postdoctoral Teaching Certificate

July 12, 2017 I completed the requirements for the Stanford Postdoc Teaching Certificate. This included 35 hours of core teaching training (including a 12-week CIRTL MOOC, postdoc pedagogy journal club meetings, and two-day Teaching Workshop from the Stanford Faculty Development Center), 35 hours elective teaching training (Vice Provost for Teaching & Learning workshops, more CIRTL MOOCs, IRACDA Scholars virtual lectures, and Scientific Management Series), 5 hours teaching practice with 15 hours preparation, and a teaching portfolio with teaching statement. For each pedgogical opportunity, I wrote a summary of the learning goals as well as 1-2 paragraphs of self-reflection.
