Event Date & Time
Eligibility: The TA Institute is open to all undergraduate TAs, graduate students who are interested in teaching, and all graduate student TAs. This session is not open to general undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff, or faculty.
We’re in the midst of transition from online to in-person learning, which offers both a challenge and an opportunity for both TAs and students. It’s more important than ever to think about the format of our classroom, and consciously work toward creating a positive, supportive environment. This session will address the current need for flexibility in teaching across in person, online, and hybrid models, and prepare TAs to transition their teaching environment as necessary. Participants will share and reflect on their own learning experiences, and collaborate on how to establish effective teaching environments across these modes of instruction.
- Kelsey Wilson, PhD Student, Department of English Language & Literatures
- Charlotte Trainor, PhD Student, Department of Mathematics
