This series will provide a forum for faculty and instructional staff from across campus to share innovative, evidence-based teaching techniques that graduate students can use when they are a TA. This is an opportunity for graduate students to learn practical teaching tips from excellent faculty across campus. These lunchtime workshops will run every Wednesday from 12-12:30 PM from January 27 through March 31. We will record and post these sessions below to create a repository of effective teaching techniques.
