Why is this important?

Developing teaching skills and experience will:

  • Improve your communication skills,
  • Help you determine whether teaching is really a part of what you want to do.
  • Give you a leg up on your competition in your search for an academic position, particularly at teaching-focused institutions,
  • Prepare you for your first teaching assignment as a professor, so you can focus on setting up your lab and getting grants in your first years before tenure.
