Be part of our “student audience” sessions at our workshop which trains college science faculty from around the country to teach using case studies.
During these sessions, workshop faculty will teach a case study. Your job is to participate in the case study, along with the other students, and then critique the faculty’s teaching methods and the case study. We are looking for energetic and conscientious students to earn $160 for working two days.

YOU MUST BE ABLE TO WORK BOTH DAYS.

WHAT: Your duties will be to observe and participate in class sessions where college faculty will teach a science topic using a case study–a real or fictional story that illustrates the topic. Students should come prepared to engage in the case study activities and to provide written and verbal feedback after each session on the case material and on the teaching methods of individual teachers. There won’t be a test on the material, but you will be expected to participate and to offer your opinion concerning the classroom activities.

WHO: Freshmen and sophomores only (for the school year 2018-2019) who are currently enrolled in a University or College. Ask your friends, who attend other colleges and universities and fit the criteria, to join you!

You must have a Social Security Number to participate.

HOW MUCH: You will earn $160 for both days (minus taxes for some international students and students who currently work for UB).

You will be required to sign in each day, at each session. Failure to do so will result in you not getting paid.

WHERE: Talbert 107, UB North Campus. We will email you with instructions on where to report for the first day of work. Your start time will be 8:30 a.m. Your work day will end by around 4:45 p.m. You will be allowed a lunch break from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. each day. You may bring a bag lunch or buy your lunch on campus. It is important that you report back on time after your lunch break.
