This workshop will have two parts: we will discuss the make-up of the student body at the UW and implications for teaching.We will also provide an overview of the ITA Program and ways the Program can help support you as a TA.Note: Most workshops are offered at least twice during the TA Conference. We will identify goals of lab instruction, ways to plan and facilitate effective lab sessions, and strategies for a successful first day of class. Our discussion will include different approaches to common language learning issues, as well as ways to help resolve possible differences between student perceptions of what they need and instructors’ understanding of effective language learning approaches. Although we will not address course design in detail in this workshop, we will provide a list of resources to help you through this process. Explore effective teaching theories for Classroom Response. We also provide support six days a week for Canvas, Panopto, Poll Everywhere, Zoom, and other tools.So, if you would like to attend two workshops that meet at the same time, you should be able to find the same workshop offered at another time. Learn to import Canvas rosters and export scores to the Canvas Gradebook. These sessions, which will take place on the afternoon of Monday, September 18, are required for all first-year TAs who are not native speakers of English.Sometimes the biggest turn-offs during the sales process are the unconscious mannerisms that sales people display without even realizing it! I have my 28 students (in my Strategic Selling class) sit on both sides of their tables facing a partner.In this exercise we focus on eliminating “Um”, keeping hand gestures concise and non-distracting, and on using the power of silence. I then holler, “South facing students move two chairs to your right.It’s important for sales professionals to practice not using the word “um” when they are speaking.
Students should bring their hands together in front of them, bringing fingertips together momentarily as they speak about your favorite hobby.Students then pull out a watch or cell phone (anything with a timing device will do).One person in the pair then explains to their partner what they did for Labor Day weekend for a full 60 seconds without using “um” or pausing. Your students will be so conscious of the word “Um” that they can’t help themselves but to say it! Finally, some students will finish, at which point you can put the rest of them out of their misery by calling for a halt.The second use of the 2-second pause is to elicit more information from the client or prospect.After the person you are talking to says something, wait and pause for 2-seconds. You will get more information out of your customer and sell more stuff. -) Classroom discussions can be the most exciting — and challenging — part of teaching a class. We will discuss ways to overcome the fear of public speaking and to assess the effectiveness of presentations. -) In this workshop, we will examine aspects of effective presentations such as: organization, examples, visuals, pacing and delivery.Now, North facing students move one chair to your right!” forcing each student to move into slightly unfamiliar territory. Inclusive teaching in higher education refers to the ways in which all aspects of teaching and learning are designed and implemented to engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant and accessible to all regardless of social differences such as race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, class, sexuality, disability/ability, religion, nationality, age and military status (Hockings, 2010). This self-paced online workshop introduces several ways to gather student feedback and use it to improve your teaching. -) The research on teaching and learning tells us that inclusive teaching contributes to greater student engagement and more effective learning overall. In this workshop, we will discuss teaching strategies that are grounded in research on how students learn. We will discuss how to develop a list of expectations and evaluative criteria, assign grading value to those items, and build a grading matrix based on that information.
