Getting the Most Out of your TA Experience

Tuesday 3:00pm-4:15pm Tennessee State University
Round Table Discussion


Brendan Hanger, Colorado School of Mines
Your experience as a teaching assistant (TA) can be one of the most important you experience during graduate, and can be fundamental in deciding whether or not you enjoy teaching later in your career. This discussion will provide an opportunity to learn about some strategies for making the most of your TA, regardless of your ultimate goals. Whether you are just beginning as a TA and want to improve your teaching, or are more experienced and want to jump beyond the basic lab TA role there will be strategies you can use to get more out of the experience. We will discuss the experiences of each other and share strategies.
