Fall Teaching Conference Workshop: Harvard Undergraduate Perspectives: A Panel for International TFs


Wednesday, August 25, 2021, 12:30pm to 1:30pm



Sarah Emory, Assistant Director, International Teachers and Scholars, Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning
with an experienced panel of undergraduate Culture and Communication Consultants

Are you a TF who received your undergraduate degree at an institution outside the U.S.? How might the undergraduate experience at Harvard differ from your own experience? What does it mean to be a teaching fellow (TF) and what do Harvard undergraduates expect from TFs? In this interactive panel discussion, undergraduate students will share their perspectives on what makes for a successful TF and discuss how building rapport can help foster an effective learning environment. You will have the opportunity to hear directly from Harvard undergraduate students and ask them questions. Note: Please complete the Teaching as an International Scholar module on the Hit the Ground Running Canvas site in preparation for this session. 

This session is part of the Fall Teaching Conference, which is designed to prepare new and experienced graduate student teachers for their roles as Teaching Fellows in the FAS. Pre-registration is required. Learn more here.
