Graduate Student Committee and Teaching Religion Unit

Call for Proposals

The Teaching Religion Unit and the Graduate Student Committee invite proposals for a co-sponsored session on “Preparing for Careers in Teaching Religion.” This session will be a skills-based offering tailored to address the needs, experiences, questions, and hopes of graduate students, some of whom are already teaching and looking ahead toward careers as teachers in classrooms and communities. This session invites presentations that share best practices or some advice for teaching as/with graduate students and will include break out groups for more in-depth conversations (and networking!). Potential topics addressed might include: designing accessible syllabi and/or lesson plans; reflections on the job market and teaching portfolios; how to apply for jobs in various institutions if teaching is your primary interest; how to write a teaching statement; “ungrading” and different types of grading methods; and diversifying assignments (especially final projects) beyond the research paper.
