Chester Scoville, Teaching Fellow, CTSI, Assistant Professor (Teaching Stream), Department of English and Drama, UTM 

Academics in general, and teaching assistants especially, often experience anxiety, feelings of inadequacy, and uncertainty when facing a new group of students. This workshop will explore the hows and whys of this anxiety, and work through ways to overcome it. We will discuss how tools like marking rubrics and tutorial syllabi can help you claim your place in front of the classroom with confidence.
