What can new TFs do to get ready for the first day of class and beyond? Come to this introduction to the fundamentals of teaching to practically prepare to teach for the first time, to learn about resources available to you as you begin your teaching career, and to build confidence in the process! We follow the arc of the semester in this workshop, starting with the first day of class and moving through lesson planning, delivery, and giving and receiving feedback. Please bring a syllabus to use (your own or one for a class you might teach).This session is designed for TFs teaching for the first time in the spring term, but is open to anyone at the early stage of their teaching career who would like more guidance on the fundamentals of teaching.
This workshop is a part of Winter Teaching Week- a series of intensive workshops offered during J-Term in conjunction with January@GSAS for graduate student teachers at every stage, from just starting out to looking toward the job market.
