TA Project

Event Description

You will start teaching a lab, a class, or a recitation section this upcoming Fall and want to use the summer to start thinking about teaching? You have already graded for a professor but do not know how to make use of that experience in a classroom setting? This session is specifically designed to explore common questions you might have in a group setting and we will share some tips and tricks for a great first-time teaching experience!

Event Description

Summer classes present TAs with different challenges and opportunities, both in person and online. Because these courses have both a compressed time period and longer classes, instructors need to find different ways of presenting their material. This workshop will present ways to teach effectively during the summer, in a traditional classroom and in an online classroom.

Event Description

During this session, we will discuss academic integrity and the role of the TA. We will review common violations (e.g., cheating, plagiarism, dishonesty) and the process for dealing with these violations according to Rutgers' policy. We will also explore preventative and proactive measures TAs/instructors can take to reinforce academic integrity.

Event Description

Teachers acquire valuable skills to effectively engage and educate their students. Beyond an academic context, teaching skills are transferable for roles in business, leadership, research, and more. During this workshop, discuss how to refine and reframe teaching skills to benefit a non-academic career path.

Event Description

This interactive session will help you consider and design your Teaching Philosophy Statement which is an integral component of the job application for faculty positions.

Event Description

The goals of this workshop are to introduce models of student motivation for learning and discuss ways to build motivation in the classroom. Taking evidence from research in the field of self-regulation, we will consider how instructors can both help and harm student motivation.

Event Description

The Teaching Portfolio is a documented statement of an instructor's teaching responsibilities, philosophy, goals, and teaching accomplishments. As part of the reappointment and promotion process, departments must review candidate teaching portfolios in conjunction with other sources of evidence. Join us for a workshop to write or refine your teaching philosophy, consider the evidence you want to share to demonstrate your teaching effectiveness, and be sure your portfolio represents your accomplishments in teaching.

Event Description

This workshop explores the purposes of a diversity statement for academic employment, reviews pedagogical practices for teaching diverse students, and examines how scholars can talk about diversity in their teaching and research. Armed with this information, participants review and critique sample diversity statements before work-shopping their own ideas and drafts of the diversity statement. Participants should bring any materials related to the diversity statement that they have already prepared.
