Description

Orientation Overview

The Center for Teaching and Learning offers graduate students a set of orientation sessions designed to supplement department-based orientation and training. Topics include tactics to get classes off to a good start, best practices in feedback and grading, introduction to active learning principles and approaches, inventories of teaching policies and resources at Columbia, and guidance for using CourseWorks (Canvas). Teaching orientation is open to all new teaching assistants, teaching fellows, and other graduate students in an instructor role. Experienced Teaching Fellows will attend to answer questions and offer advice.

Check-in starts at 8:30 am in Butler Library Room 203. Coffee and breakfast will be available before the day kicks off promptly at 9:00 am.

Microteaching Practice Sessions

Graduate students will also have the opportunity to sign up for microteaching sessions from 2:15 pm - 4:00 pm to receive individualized feedback on their teaching. A limited number of microteaching practice slots are available. To take advantage of this opportunity to receive individual feedback, please also sign up for a microteaching slot and prepare a brief (5 minutes maximum) lecture, demonstration, or learning activity to try out.

NOTE: Graduate students who cannot attend the orientation designed for their discipline are welcome to attend on the alternate day: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/teaching-orientation-for-graduate-students-in-sciences-and-engineering-registration-33505026436
