Satisfies prerequisite toward the Delta Certificate: Learning Community

As graduate teaching assistants, it can be challenging to balance the immediate needs of teaching with your own development as an effective instructor. The EPIC Foundations interdisciplinary learning community of graduate TAs will help you develop an effective, inclusive classroom as well as navigate teaching challenges as they emerge throughout the semester. Through engaging in a 10-week seminar, participants will develop relationships with other graduate TAs who are interested and invested in these conversations, develop new tools and gain feedback on various teaching approaches, and build toward future teaching goals. TAs with two or fewer semesters of teaching are especially welcome in this section.
