Preparing graduate students to teach undergraduate mathematics:

An NSF funded working conference

June 12th and 13th

Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138

Graduate students play substantial roles in undergraduates’ opportunities to learn mathematics. For graduate students planning on employment in academia, the teaching they do in graduate school serves as professional preparation for future pedagogical responsibilities. Over the past several decades increased attention has been paid to the professional development of graduate students for their teaching-related responsibilities.

The primary goal of this NSF funded working conference is to promote dialogue and collaboration among practitioners, researchers, and others involved in the professional development of mathematics graduate students.

We anticipate participants will include those who

As a result of dialogue and collaborations emerging from the conference, we aim to:
