One-Credit Teaching Seminar (ENGRG 6780)

This seminar will be offered next in Spring 2023 by Engineering Learning Initiatives. The course is offered as an opportunity to enhance the TA experience and TA professional development through reflection and metacognition regarding an individuals’ teaching practice, troubleshooting challenges, and taking a slightly deeper dive into the literature of evidence-based practices, as it benefits individual TAs during the semester.

The course is facilitated by the Associate Director of Engineering Learning Initiatives.
