I recently moved to a new Business School in NJ. I will be teaching a doctoral seminar for graduate students in the Spring semester. My PhD is from the UK and so I had limited knowledge of how a doctoral seminar would be taught here in the states.
I spoke with a couple of senior colleagues of my previous school and they all told me: Oh, it's easy! Just give them papers, ask them to present each week and you will play the role of a moderator for students' discussion.
I searched and found limited information about teaching doctoral seminar. I know that I have to prepare a reading list for this class whose students do not share the same area with me. This is thus a bit challenging!
Does anyone know any source that I can access? Any experience, tip or advice are highly appreciated!
Your colleagues describe them about right to me. In my doctoral seminars there was also, each semester, a requirement to complete a research paper on a related topic throughout the semester with help from the professor.
Why not ask your colleagues at your new school for old syllabi from the previous professors?
