University of Toronto Mississauga – DH3075 – ELECTIVE

Abdullah Farooqi, TATP Humanities Trainer

Do you have a dilemma, challenge, or question about teaching? At this brown-bag lunch, we’ll be focusing on planning that TAs can do to help their students and themselves during the middle of the semester. If your students seem unprepared to start tackling that final paper or project, or unwilling to jump into discussion, come join us to discuss strategies! As always, any and all teaching dilemmas are welcome, whether they relate to this theme or not.

Participation in one of these Brown-Bag Lunch ‘n’ Learn sessions counts as one elective workshop credit towards the Certificate Program! (A maximum of one lunch can be counted towards the TF Certificate and up to two lunches can be counted towards the AUTP Certificate Program.)

There are two ways to participate in the Teaching Dilemmas: Brown-Bag Lunch ‘n’ Learn Series.

1. Registered Participants
If you would like your participation to count towards one of our certificate programs, please register using the links below. Please note that registered participants must:

  1. Be present for the whole 2 hours of the lunch.
  2. Indicate what their teaching dilemma/idea is at the time of registration and be prepared to raise it as a discussion topic during the lunch.
  3. Complete the Teaching Dilemmas Reflection Form at the end of the lunch (to be completed within the 2-hour session).

2. Drop-In Participants
You may also attend the Brown-Bag Lunches in a more informal capacity. If you are unable to stay for the full 2 hours, or are interested in participating in discussion and meeting fellow TAs but don’t have a pressing teaching dilemma, you are still welcome to join in. In this case, no registration is required – simply join us in the CTSI Boardroom (RL 4035) with your lunch! (Drop-in participation does not count towards the TATP Certificate Program.)
