 +  - The (graduate level) interactive classroom: Using group discussion and other active learning techniques with graduate courses
 +  - Teaching large classes
 +  - Teaching what you don't know: What do you do when you're asked to teach a subject that is not your area of expertise? ​
 +  - The role of faculty as advisers: project, dissertation and thesis guidance (developing autonomy, adaptability,​ control, self-efficacy)
 +  - Learning styles and preferences. What works and what doesn'​t work in each instance?
 +  - Balancing a research career with teaching (i.e., teaching and not perishing).
