What I Learned: Confessions of Second-Year Teaching Assistants

DATE: Tuesday, September 22, 2015
TIME: 12:00pm-1:30pm
LOCATION: College Hall 205

What do you wish you had known before you started student teaching? What lessons did you learn in your first year as a TA? At the History Department’s inaugural CTL workshop of 2015-2016, three veteran TAs will reflect upon their first years leading the college classroom. Panelists Ayelet Brinn, Josef Nothmann, and Camille Suarez will revisit their experiences designing lesson plans, leading discussion, and assessing student performance as first-year TAs. They will recount what worked, what they would have done differently, and what advice they would give to their former selves. The panelists will also discuss their individual teaching philosophies and how their philosophies evolved as the year progressed. This panel is open to everyone from all levels of teaching experience. Whether you are simply curious about TA-ing, have just been assigned your first section, or are a seasoned pedagogue, you are invited to join our conversation.
