Teaching Fellows
The Citizen Science Teaching Fellows are student leaders who provide key support during the Laboratory Rotation. Teaching Fellows work with Citizen Science Faculty to communicate concepts, answer questions, and supervise first-year students as they conduct experiments. In addition, under the supervision of the Laboratory Coordinator, Teaching Fellows are responsible for the preparation of the teaching lab, active problem solving, and effective communication to ensure an engaging learning environment.

The Citizen Science Program at Bard College is seeking Laboratory Teaching Fellows for January 2019. This innovative program is designed to provide students with opportunities to develop their personal science literacy through hands-on, real-world coursework and projects. Students selected as Citizen Science Laboratory Teaching Fellows will gain important experience in the preparation and implementation of science teaching labs as well as fundamental teaching and classroom management skills. Students from ALL academic disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Candidates must be Bard College students (any major). Laboratory Teaching Fellows will be responsible before and during the January program for a variety of critical program components, such as the preparation of laboratory materials, setup and breakdown of the teaching laboratories, cleanup of laboratory spaces, monitoring of laboratory equipment and supply levels, etc. Laboratory Teaching Fellows will work closely with a subgroup of the Citizen Science faculty as teaching assistants, supporting the classroom instruction within the lab portion of the program as defined by the individual program faculty. Fellows may also provide office support to the Citizen Science faculty and administration during the January program.

Laboratory Teaching Fellow training will occur via a 2-credit full-semester course, MAT ED521, held Monday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. starting September 10. A passing grade and attendance at all class sessions are mandatory requirements for this position.
