Abstract: The Graduate Student Teaching Intensive is a five-day professional development program that aids and assists graduate students by assessing their teaching practices, refining teaching and learning approaches and improving communication for diverse learners. The instructors include faculty members at WMU from a wide array of different backgrounds and experiences: both professional and academic. The presentation will focus on the specifics of the GSTI and experiences of attending the program. The talk will discuss tools and techniques ascertained from the intensive, applied to the classroom, and, ultimately, employed to the current professional track.
