Current listing:

HEART - Small Introductions to Big Ideas

The Hopkins Engineering Applications & Research Tutorials (HEART) program provides new undergraduate students with a window on cutting-edge engineering research and its applications to society. These small classes are taught by advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Students will be introduced to cutting-edge engineering research and learn how that research impacts society

SOUL Courses (Special Opportunities for Undergraduate Learning)

These courses, to be offered in Fall 2018, are to be small (enrollment 18 or fewer), 1 credit hour courses graded S/U. Courses will be academic in nature, but they can focus on skills that will be valuable to future study in the field. Course content should be accessible by freshmen and sophomores. Courses will be offered in a 6-week session, meeting either once or twice per week for a total of 12 hours of instruction time. Some form of assessment is required, and student attendance is mandatory. Center for Educational Resources staff are available to offer instructional design and/or assessment support to any SOUL instructor.

Instructors will be graduate students, postdoctoral fellows or staff, and faculty oversight will be required. Instructors will be paid $2000 per course. All proposals must have explicit approval of a KSAS departmental chair, program director, or department/program director of undergraduate studies.

Session:  Monday, October 22 - Friday, December 7 

To submit a proposal, please send the following to schildbach@jhu.edu: a course title, a short course description indicating course topic(s), any readings, and preferred day and time; instructor CV; and (separately) a brief indication of support from a KSAS chair/director/DUS. Questions may be directed to the same email address.  Courses will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting immediately. Deadline for submission of proposals is September 23.

Dean’s Teaching Fellowship

The Dean’s Teaching Fellowship Program of the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences is designed to foster innovation in the undergraduate curriculum, to give advanced graduate students experience teaching their own undergraduate courses, and to provide funding for graduate research. This prestigious fellowship provides graduate students an opportunity to grow both as educators and scholars by allowing them to propose, design and offer an undergraduate seminar course. (Open to KSAS graduate students only.)

Gordis Teaching Fellowships

Each year the Offices of the Dean of Arts and Sciences and Bloomberg School of Public Health sponsor the Gordis Teaching Fellowship Program. The fellowship is designed to foster innovation in the undergraduate public health curriculum, to give advanced graduate students in the Bloomberg School of Public Health experience teaching their own undergraduate courses, and offer undergraduates the opportunity to take seminar-size classes with 19 or fewer students. Graduate students regard this as a rare opportunity to promote themselves academically.

Collaborative Teaching Fellows Program

The Collaborative Teaching Fellows program aims to give Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at Johns Hopkins a hands-on teaching experience with mentorship and coaching from exemplary undergraduate teaching faculty at local partner institutions such as Towson, Loyola, Goucher, Notre Dame of MD, Stevenson and Morgan State.

Teaching Apprenticeships

The Teaching Academy Apprenticeship is a professional development opportunity for advanced graduate students to acquire significant teaching experience under the mentorship of faculty members. The Teaching Academy participant will work closely with a faculty mentor to help plan, teach, and assess a portion of a course in which the mentee is responsible for class instruction.
