We have a lot of exciting updates from the GSTA to share with you this month. The second volume of our e-book series How We Teach Now is now available, and we also have some leadership changes. More information below!

New! Volume 2 of GSTA E-Book Series

We are excited to announce that the second volume of the GSTA’s e-book series, How We Teach Now, is now available on the STP website! This volume, titled How We Teach Now: The GSTA Guide to Transformative Teaching, offers evidence-based advice on transformative teaching practices and provides a handy reference for graduate students embarking on their teaching careers. The 34 chapters, authored by graduate students and expert teachers, emphasize the importance of getting to know your students, creating inclusive learning environments, designing instruction with learning objectives in mind, promoting active learning and community engagement, engaging students in authentic research and scientific inquiry, and fostering professional development, oral communication, and writing skills. We are deeply grateful to the contributing authors for taking the time to share their insights and experiences as part of this e-book!

You can download and read the new volume and the first volume for free on the STP website.
