Getting Started

Guest lecturing is a great way to jump start your career in academia.  Guest lecturing means you get to take over a professor’s class for a day and teach their students.  The benefits of guest lecturing is that you can focus on a topic that is of special importance to you and speak passionately about it to an audience of students who are engaged. 

Reflect on your interests – choose  courses that are of interest to you and that relate to your professional experiences.  With guest lectures, you gain teaching experience, experience in managing a classroom and facilitating dialogue, and the classes can be added to your resume to demonstrate your capability for future faculty applications.  Begin your journey with guidance from the Black Woman’s Guide to Advancing in Academia and connect with Black women faculty in our online community.
