A mock lecture allows instructors to develop and refine their teaching skills. It will enable them to practice structuring content, delivering engaging presentations, using effective instructional strategies, and managing classroom dynamics. During the mock lecture, instructors will receive feedback from faculty, divisional staff, students, and Samberg staff. This feedback will help you identify strengths and areas for improvement and provide insights on enhancing your teaching techniques and delivery.
All prospective adjuncts will deliver a mock lecture during the hiring process. Divisions can also request mock lectures for new full-time faculty or faculty teaching new courses.
The Mock Lecture consists of three segments
Five to ten minutes for self-introduction and a brief course overview.
The overview should include a short bio, 2-3 key learning objectives, and course and session roadmaps.
Thirty minutes of sample content.
This section will simulate a typical classroom session. The lecture should include opportunities for discussion and interaction with students and a summary of key takeaways.
Ten to fifteen minutes of post-Mock Lecture discussion.
During this section, the members of the CBS community in attendance will complete a feedback form, and we will discuss the Mock Lecture. After the conclusion of the Mock Lecture, we will share a summary of the feedback with you.
