Princeton Grad Students Practice Teaching at Community CollegeJanuary 12, 2018 |
by Donald Gilpin
Princeton University (PU) and Mercer County Community College (MCCC) have launched a collaborative program for PU graduate students to gain teaching experience in the community college classroom, and the reviews are positive on both sides.
History doctoral candidate Merle Eisenberg, who taught a Western civilization class at MCCC this past fall, reported that considerable learning took place, both for himself and his students. “The partnership between Princeton and MCCC is a great way for Princeton graduate students to plan and teach their own class, which can often be difficult to do at Princeton,” he said.
