Teaching Practicum - (NSCI-920) - In this course students prepare and deliver lectures in a course (e.g., Drugs, the Brain and Behavior). Along with the lecture preparation, reflection on teaching strategies and pedagogy is required.
Medical Neuroanatomy Laboratory - (NSCI-545) - This course is designed to teach first-year medical students functional neuroanatomy and has a laboratory component. IPN students take this course in their first year. Thereafter, IPN students can participate as teaching assistants in the laboratory portion of the course.
Teaching Assistant - There are a variety of neuroscience related courses offered in the Biology, Psychology, and Physics departments. Our students have served as teaching assistants in courses in all of these departments. Interested students are encouraged to browse course offerings and contact faculty members.
Apprenticeship in Teaching Program - The Center for New Designs in Learning & Scholarship (CNDLS) at Georgetown University has organized a program to allow a certificate in teaching that is noted on your final transcript. Via a series of workshops and involvement in authentic teaching tasks, skills required for effective teaching are acquired.
Neuroscience Recitation - (NSCI-511/513) - The team-taught nature of the first year core courses allows students to receive high-level instruction in the major areas of Neuroscience from experts in the field. Recitation is a student-led complement to core which emphasizes the fundamental concepts and recurring themes of Neuroscience. Special emphasis is placed on functional anatomy and circuitry of the nervous system.
