Ghazal Fazli, TATP Sciences Trainer

Creating a collaborative, stimulating and effective learning environment requires much more than attention to content. As TAs, we must also develop a confident, comfortable classroom presence, while at the same time making sure that we are connecting with students who have different personalities and learning styles. In this workshop, how to develop and refine our teaching styles so we may authentically engage with a varied student body will be considered. Together, we will discuss strategies for becoming more confident and connected to our students, including methods of self-assessment, techniques for ‘reading’ the audience, and using body language to establish a dynamic classroom presence.
