Ghazal Fazli, TATP Sciences Trainer
Research focused on student engagement demonstrates that undergraduates value the relationships they have with TAs highly. The research also highlights that interaction with students inside and outside of the classroom are key to engaging students and for their supporting academic success.
This workshop will focus on developing concrete methods for navigating relationships between students, TAs and course instructors. Facilitators and attendees will work through a series of case studies with the goals of effectively diagnosing potentially “problematic” situations and turning consultations or “conflicts” into positive opportunities for teaching.
This session will also examine strategies to foster successful relationships with your course instructors. Issues covered will include: academic policy, time management, and tips for various working styles and needs. Attendees will leave with a concrete list to facilitate their relationships with course instructors.
