Graduate Assistant Workshop
Most students enter graduate programs expecting to learn and change; some, however, do not realize that part of their learning will include teaching courses and labs for undergraduates both in their major and in general education courses.
So, when you (as a graduate student) are asked to teach or to take on some teaching responsibilities, you may have few strategies to help you succeed.
This workshop introduces you to basic teaching strategies: what pedagogies are available to you, what technologies can help you, what kinds of students will you have in your classroom, and how you can deal with matters of classroom discipline or civility. You will earn one hour of graduate credit for successfully completing this workshop.
The sessions will meet from 1:00-3:00 on these Friday afternoons:
- February 11
- February 18
- February 25
- March 18
- March 25
In the past, the workshops have attracted students from many disciplines with a range of teaching experiences.
The workshops are co-facilitated by Dr. Meg Morgan from the Department of English and an affiliate with the Center for Teaching and Learning and Dr. Maria Yon from the College of Education, a faculty fellow for five years with the Center for Teaching and Learning. Together they have 80 years of teaching experience.
NOTE: This is also offered as a one-credit-hour course. If you would like to sign-up for this as a credit bearing course, through the normal course registration system, instead of a workshop, the course is EDUC-6000-001. Or you may sign-up here for the non-credit version. So we have a proper count of attendees, please sign-up here or there, but NOT both.
