Description

University of Toronto Mississauga – DH2080 – CORE

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

Academics in general, and teaching assistants especially, often experience anxiety and uncertainty when facing a new group of students. In this workshop, we will discuss how techniques of active learning can help you claim your place in front of the classroom with confidence, and explore how they can both supplement and improve upon techniques of traditional lecture and discussion. We will also discuss how such tools as marking rubrics and tutorial syllabi can improve consistency, efficiency, and confidence in a classroom setting.
