Above, Dandrielle Lewis, PhD Mathematical Sciences '11, shares her experience with the Co-Teaching Project.
Often, advanced graduate students in the STEM disciplines do not have opportunities to teach because they receive their primary funding through research grants. Through the Co-Teaching Project, selected students receive a semester of funding that allows them to immerse themselves in teaching. With the support of a faculty mentor, these students design and teach an upper-level course within their discipline. They gain first-hand experience in classroom instruction and management, receive regular feedback from their faculty mentor, and have the opportunity to build collegial relationships with fellow faculty. The Co-Teaching Project introduces students to the professoriate as an attractive alternative to private and government-supported research positions.
Launched in 2009, the Co-Teaching Project is a selective program. Each semester, two AGEP-qualifying students are selected to participate in the Co-Teaching Program.
The Co-Teaching Project supports NSF-AGEP's goal of preparing underrepresented minorities in STEM disciplines for positions in academia.
