Welcome to the home page of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Graduate Student Teachers of Central Arkansas. We are a group of UAMS graduate students interested in fostering development of skills in the art of teaching. Science depends on the ability of today’s scientists to communicate and translate scientific literature and laboratory techniques to future generations. Science must be accessible to students. This organization connects undergraduate science programs in central Arkansas to UAMS students interested in developing teaching skills. We hope to develop skills in:
*effective lecture presentation
*preparation of laboratory exercises
*course material preparation
*development of an academic portfolio
We currently network with Hendrix College and UCA in Conway, AR, and are hoping to grow our program to other area universities.
Please see GSTCA Symposium-May 22, 2012 for our Graduate Student Teaching symposium!!!
