Being a teaching assistant has wonderful benefits and opportunities for growth. In this workshop, we will discuss how learning works, the importance of metacognition and how you can use this knowledge to both teach and learn better. We will spend time discussing scenarios you may encounter as a teaching assistant. We will finish up with reviewing some essential considerations to get you off on the right foot!
This workshop is an example of the types of discussions at our semester-long learning community for graduate teaching assistants — Teaching Tips and Techniques (TTT). Feel free to explore the TTT and register if you want to learn more about being an effective teacher, get to know other graduate students, and practice working through teaching scenarios in a supportive space.
