Past Workshops


Graduate Seminar (May 28 & 29, 2014)

This free, two-day seminar is designed to deliver the information graduate students need to be successful as students and as instructors/TAs. Lunch and refreshments are provided on both days. The seminar will tentatively be run from 8:30am - 4:30pm each day (subject to change).

The first day provides resources, tools and strategies to help graduate students in their role as student. The morning will focus on academic integrity, using library resources effectively and integrating research. The afternoon will include sessions on working effectively with your advisor, and on useful writing strategies.

The second day focuses on the skills a graduate student needs to be an effective instructor/teaching assistant. Presentation topics include syllabus creation, instructional strategies, assessment and evaluation, teaching with technology, dealing with classroom incivility, and diversity.

Students may register for one or both days. In the past, there have been significant waiting lists, so please register early.
