Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: Whether you are TAing for the class of your dreams or teaching outside your comfort zone, teaching with others can be a challenge. Professors and TAs can have different philosophies and expectations when it comes to the classroom and grading. This workshop will focus on strategies for getting the most out of your teaching experience by building a harmonious and productive relationship with your fellow TAs and professor. We will explore how to set up a good relationship before the class starts, troubleshoot difficult situations, and succeed as a team.
