SESSION A – 2pm – 4pm
Course Administration for First Time CUPE 3902 Unit 1 Course Instructors
This two hour training session will introduce first-time course instructors (CIs) to the basic elements involved in preparing to teach a course at the University of Toronto. We will cover a variety of important administrative and logistical details that arise throughout the cycle of a course, ranging from what needs to be in place before a course begins (course website, ordering texts, etc.), to important dates that arise during the term (drop dates, administrative dates, etc.), and the steps to take once the course is over (posting of final grades, closing of course website, etc.). Participants will leave with a clear view of what a typical course timeline looks like in terms of its administration, and will also have the opportunity to prepare a checklist of steps they need to take to prepare for teaching their first course.
