Calling First-time TAs - An Orientation Conference - "Making the Difference" - is coming up!
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 8:30AM-1:00PM
Hodson Hall, Homewood Campus
Effective teaching is essential both to your academic future and our students' university education. Arts & Sciences and Engineering Deans, the Graduate Representative Organization (GRO) and the Center for Educational Resources (CER) are co-sponsoring a half-day introduction to good instructional practice. All first-time TAs whose appointments are either in the fall or spring terms of AY 14-15 are required to attend.
Full descriptions of the breakout workshops are available. If you have questions about any of the workshops or about the registration process, please contact Richard Shingles of the Center for Educational Resources at 410.516.4679 or email@example.com.
Intended for those with little or no formal pedagogical training, these workshops are designed to prepare instructors to teach effectively at the university level.
Workshops are open to all graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, lecturers, and faculty with instructional appointments in Arts & Sciences or Engineering. This PDF Brochure has more details.
