University of Maryland Graduate Teaching Orientation 2014
At the beginning of each academic year the Teaching and Learning Transformation Center (TLTC, formerly CTE) offers incoming graduate student instructors an essential introduction to teaching at a large research university. In workshops and seminars graduate student instructors have the chance to learn how to manage their workload and stay sane as graduate teaching assistants, how to grade effectively and efficiently, how to lead group discussions, or how to work with a diverse student body. The TLTC also offers special sessions for international graduate teaching assistants, and teaching in an unfamiliar cultural environment.
If you are interested in attending please RSVP here (lunch and breakfast provided).
