Today, I am providing a cross post to the Teaching Thursday blog (yes, I know it is Tuesday!), but in the interest of providing a way for graduate students to make connections and contribute to the scholarly voice of campus, this seems very timely. Check out the post for “Expanding the Discussion”, here.
Why reinvent the wheel? Today’s Teaching Thursday blog has a great post from Rebecca Romsdahl, Assistant Professor in UND’s Department of Earth System Science & Policy. She discusses Bridging the Gap in Graduate Education.
The Office of Instructional Development has invited Rebecca and Patti Aleva (Law) to present this at the upcoming On Teaching Lunch Seminar. The Graduate School will post details about that seminar next week.
We are now officially into the fall semester after what seems to have been an all-too-short summer break. This past week, The Graduate School hosted two days of orientation for a record number of students.
More than 140 new graduate students joined us on Wednesday, and even some of those braved the stormy weather to come to University Park for the picnic.
On Thursday, over 100 new Graduate Teaching and Research Assistants listened to a variety of sessions that focused on their new jobs on campus.
We are excited by the turnout, and optimistic at the prospect of a record enrollment this fall. Welcome back to our current students and for those who are new, enjoy your classes and your new academic environments.
