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
