UB Two Day Job Opportunity for students-Earn $160

Posted by Tim on April 10, 2018 in Career Opportunities, Student Assistant, Student Job Opportunities, Workshops

Kipp Herreid, Professor of Biological Sciences and Co-Director or the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science (NCCSTS) is hoping you might be able to help us out by sending the message below to your undergraduate listservs. We are in the process of trying to recruit freshmen and sophomores to work for us at our annual Case Studies in Science Summer Workshop May 24 & 25, 2018. Our summer workshop trains college science faculty from around the country to teach using case studies. Students are hired to be part of the “student audience” for our practice teaching sessions. During these sessions, workshop faculty will teach a case study. Students will participate in the case study along with the other students and then critique the faculty’s teaching methods and the case study. Students will be paid for their work. We would appreciate your help in sending the message below to your student listserv at your earliest convenience.

Please let us know if you will be able to help. I would be greatly appreciated. Please give me a call if you have any questions.
