Peer Scholars Program
Are you a graduate student or postdoctoral scholar?
Are you interested in teaching a useful skill to your peers, using library resources and spaces, all while being paid for your expertise?
Then join the Peer Scholars Program! The Peer Scholars Program is an ongoing workshop series managed by the NC State University Libraries. All workshops in the program are taught by graduate students and postdoctoral scholars, who are given the spaces and technologies they need to teach useful or interesting skills to their peers at NC State.
Previous Peer Scholars and topics have included:
"National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Fellowship Bootcamp", taught by Dr. Morgan DiCarlo from the Civil Engineering Department
"Creating Your Literature Review" taught by Dr. Andrew Smolski from the Sociology Department
"Creating a Professional Portfolio" taught by Dr. Dianna Francisco from the Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences department
"A Gentle Introduction to Network Analysis in R" taught by Dr. Melissa Whatley from the Belk Center for Community College Leadership and Research
The Peer Scholars Program is an opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to gain valuable teaching experience, improve communication skills, and learn to use classroom technology effectively in an informal, yet real-life, teaching setting.
