Marking Papers and Giving Feedback

Event Date & Time

  • August 23, 2016
    1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Event Description

Marking papers and exams is often one of the main responsibilities as a TA, and potentially one of the most sensitive. You need to ensure marking fairly and consistently, giving informative feedback, and all within a reasonable amount of time so you can focus on everything else you need to do as a graduate student. In this workshop, we will review a few strategies that will help you keep your grades consistent, provide feedback that helps students learn from their mistakes as well as their successes, and do it all in a way that saves you both time and energy.

Facilitator: Sarah Moore

TA Summer Institute Theme – Managing Your Workload

Graduate students have many competing demands on their time and energy – not just TAing, but research, coursework, professional development, preparing for a career, and maybe even having a life beyond the university! All of the workshops specifically offered for TAs during the Summer Institute will include support to help you manage your workload as a TA – whether it is dealing with time management, stress, or just planning out your work. You can be an excellent TA while at the same time having space for other aspects of your life
