Teaching Outside Your Area of Expertise

Tanya Singh, CTL Graduate Fellow, Biology

Tuesday, October 14 | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: It is common for TAs to be asked to teach topics outside their area of expertise. How do you begin to establish yourself as an authority in the classroom when you don’t feel like a master of the content? How can you plan class time to emphasize your strengths? In this workshop, you will be asked to think of a potential topic/course outside your area of expertise that you may be asked to teach now or in the future to help come up with generalized, feasible solutions to these questions and more.
All graduate students are welcome. Counts towards CTL Teaching Certificate.
