Are you teaching in a remote course for the first time? Do you have some experience in the online classroom, and are looking for ways to be more efficient while supporting your students’ learning? Join this learning community for just-in time support and evidence-based strategies for remote teaching as a graduate teaching assistant. 

As a TA, it can be challenging to balance the immediate needs of teaching with your own development as an effective instructor, especially when teaching in a remote course. This interdisciplinary learning community of TAs will help you develop an effective, inclusive remote classroom as well as navigate teaching challenges as they emerge throughout the semester. Through engaging in this 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.

This seminar is geared towards graduate students with a TA position in a course offered remotely/online. If you are not currently teaching but are still interested in participating, please contact the facilitator.
