Workshop on Teaching as a graduate student or part-time instructor

Organizers: Marie-Andree B Langlois (Dalhousie University), and Asmita Sodhi (Dalhousie University)

Sunday December 10, 2017

17:00 - 18:00

University of Waterloo, DC Building, Room 5479

While in graduate school, our first teaching experiences are often very limited – a lot is decided for us, such as topics to cover, textbooks, and even means of evaluation. Even while working with these restrictions, there are still ways of being innovative in the classroom. This workshop will focus on ideas to try to make the class more enjoyable. The workshop leaders will present a few options they have tried, some that worked and some that failed, and participants are invited to share stories and ask questions of their own. If you prefer to remain anonymous, you can fill this form and we will share your story or question for you. The workshop will conclude with a fun activity to explore your ideas.

Studc Student Research Session

The Canadian Mathematical Society Student Committee (CMS Studc) invite students (undergraduate and graduate) to present a talk on a topic of their choice at the Student Research Presentations Session during the 2017 CMS Winter Meeting.

These presentations should introduce the student’s research to a general mathematical audience

Any questions about the student sessions should be directed to the student session organizers, Aram Dermenjian and Robert Redelmeier, at studc-winter17-session@cms.math.ca.

To register for the session, contact the organizers of the session with a draft abstract by November 24th. Notice of acceptance will be given by December 1st. Abstracts submitted after this deadline will be considered if space remains.

Presenters will also have to register for the meeting, which can be done through this form. Student members of the CMS who are presenting a poster or talk have significantly reduced registration costs ($30 until Oct 31st, $45 thereafter). If you are not currently a member of the CMS, talk to your department chair about the possibility of becoming a university-sponsored student member for a reduced fee.

Graduate Student Travel Support

With the support of CRM, the Fields Institute, and PIMS grants are available to partially fund the travel and accommodation costs for bona fide graduate students at a Canadian or other university. Preference is given to Canadian students. To apply for this funding, applicants should ask their supervisor or departmental graduate advisor to complete the online application form no later than September 29.

Applicants will be notified late in September of the funding decision. If successful, the student will receive a cheque for reimbursement of expenses after the meeting and upon completion and submission of the standard Travel Expense Claim Form, along with appropriate original receipts.

For more information, please contact the Meeting Committee.
