Thursday Sept. 7
Teaching Preparation Series: Communication & Fostering Self-Directed Learning
3:30 to 5 p.m.
PAR 208

This session will focus on how to establish productive relationships with your students, including how to motivate and actively engage with them.

You can register for all four sessions in the series at this link. See below for more information.

This program is targeted towards graduate students who hold non-classroom TA positions that focus on grading student work, attending faculty lectures, and holding office hours, but all graduate students and postdocs are welcome.  The series will provide basic training in grading, communicating effectively with students, and fostering self-directed learning in students.  In addition, it will allow participants to observe, practice, receive feedback on, and reflect upon classroom teaching techniques.

If you are interested in participating in the program, please enter your contact information and indicate your session preferences. Participants who complete three of the four sessions will receive a certificate of completion that acts as a credential demonstrating your investment in professional development to future employers. 

Please feel free to contact Molly Hatcher at molly.hatcher@austin.utexas.edu with further questions.  We will send a reminder prior to each session.  We look forward to working with you!
