Summary: ** 9/29: We regret that this session has to be rescheduled owing to illness. New date and time TBA. We apologize for any inconvenience. **

Many of us vividly remember the best teacher we ever had, and these teachers often serve as our role models for great teaching. What can we take away from these exemplars — and our other learning experiences — as we seek to develop our own individual teaching style? In this workshop we will talk about the choices you can make so as to shape a teaching persona consistent with your personality and goals as a teacher.

All graduate students are welcome. Counts towards CTL Teaching Certificate. Also counts as a follow-up workshop for participants in TA Training.
