The Discipline-Based Science Education Research Center (dB-SERC) will host a workshop on Friday, September 4 for new graduate teaching assistants (TAs) focused on discipline-specific issues in the teaching and learning of Natural Sciences. The workshop will be followed by a reception during which complimentary food will be provided. This workshop will be beneficial to graduate students who will serve as new TAs in the Natural Sciences and will build upon CIDDE’s workshop for new TAs offered the preceding week. In this workshop, we will discuss evidence-based strategies for improving the effectiveness of recitations including but not limited to: creating a TA teaching community, fostering collaborative learning, improving student participation, assessing student learning, and improving use of formative student feedback.
