Supporting Tomorrow’s Faculty

When the Religious Studies Department set out to design a series of workshops to help doctoral students prepare for their first college teaching experience, Dr. Neomi De Anda, assistant professor, reached out to the LTC for support.  


As a result of this collaboration, LTC staff have spent spring semester joining discussions with DeAnda and four doctoral students about syllabus design, academic integrity, active learning, support for international students, engaging students, and more.


These discussions were also supported by other members of the Religious Studies Department including Dr. Michael Barnes, professor, University Professor of Faith and Culture and Associate Professor Dr. Sandra Yocum, and Laura Eloe, A.B.D. doctoral student.


Next fall, the four doctoral students will join other REL faculty in teaching REL 103.


“Working with the LTC in preparing future faculty has provided a plethora of wisdom, support, and resources from both within and outside of Religious Studies and Theology. I have found this workshop series to be enriching to all participants,” DeAnda said.


If your department would like help in preparing graduate students to teach, please contact LTC Director of Faculty Development Susan Brown (sbrown4@udayton.edu).
