Register now! This workshop gives an overview of how students learn and teaching techniques that will help your students achieve their goals. Examine why material you’ve learned has stuck with you and the best ways to help your students hold onto the content you teach. We will discuss the merits of student-centered instruction and when to use it in your classrooms. Our focus will be on practical application.


Whether you are currently TAing or would like to TA in the future, please join us to learn new strategies and skills for the classroom in our small-group, hands-on workshops.
