TA Workshops on Pedagogy: The Active Classroom

Wed, Jan 16, 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM
/ Location: Kerr Hall 1128

Join Instructional Development for a series of workshops for graduate student TAs on pedagogy during winter quarter! All sessions are limited to 10 participants.

The Active Classroom
Facilitator: Jenny Sperling
Teaching for 50 minutes puts a lot of pressure on TAs, from preparing an entire lecture to feeling responsible for going over all the material from that week’s lectures. Sometimes, when grad school gets stressful, lecturing seems like the easiest lesson when you don’t have time to plan something more exciting. This workshop will provide you with easy and flexible activities to use in the classroom to get your students moving, talking, reflecting, and building knowledge. TAs will leave with a variety of activities that can be easily adapted for many subject areas and purposes so your students no longer have to remain seated for an entire section.

When: Wednesday, January 16, 2019
Time: 12-1pm
Where: Kerr Hall 1128

RSVP today!
