Biological Sciences Lead Teaching Fellows

Lead teaching fellows serve as liaisons between their home departments and the Center for Teaching and Learning. They help to promote pedagogical practices and discussion within their department by hosting workshops, participating in discussions, and distributing opportunities to learn more about best teaching practices. In the Biological Sciences program, LTFs have run workshops discussing how to present you research to different audiences, promoting teaching opportunities beyond TA positions, best practices for virtual teaching, and more.
