Teaching 101: Graduate Student/Postdoc Workshop
Have you been thrust into an instructional role for which you feel unprepared? Are you a multi-semester teacher who wants a refresher on some of the basics? Regardless of your teaching experience, this workshop will provide practical, concrete guidance on the mechanics of teaching and classroom presence, with an eye towards small tweaks and adjustments that can have large impacts on classroom dynamics, student learning, and instructor confidence. By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- organize and structure class sessions to maximize student understanding.
- describe and implement techniques to speak more confidently and present more effectively for student engagement.
- design and put into practice classroom activities that increase authentic participation and meaningful conversations.
