You don't have to prep for hours, change your personality, or even have everyone in the same room to have a good discussion. This workshop focuses on practical tools to help TAs lead discussion sections, whether socially distanced, online, or asynchronously. Learn how to create an environment amenable to discussions, set students up for successful contributions to conversation, and improve the odds that students will be ready to discuss. We'll also reserve time to workshop any discussion questions and frameworks you're considering.

 

This is a TA-to-TA workshop, designed for TAs and offered by one of CITL's Graduate Affiliates

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
