Introduction to Summer Teaching - Spring 2017
This workshop series prepared graduate students for the unique challenges of teaching summer courses, and provided hands-on experience designing course materials (including a syllabus) that they could use directly in their own teaching.
Some workshop takeaways were:
- Course objectives (aligned with teaching and learning activities, and assessment tasks)
- Practice in the use of lectures, discussion and group work
- Classroom strategies to handle difficult situations
- Self confidence in their own ability to teach
