Tutorials at the University of Toronto come in all shapes and sizes. As a TA, you need to be prepared to adapt your lesson planning, your learning activities and even your overall teaching approach to different types of tutorials. In this training session, you will learn how to adapt different teaching techniques to accommodate the different teaching contexts that you may encounter. You will have the opportunity to develop a ‘toolkit’ of resources that will support your tutorial planning, give you strategies to build community between students in different class sizes and class environments, assist you in scaling activities to different class sizes, help you to innovate assessment techniques and suggest some ways to use educational technologies to help facilitate interactions with students.
