Running Practice Teaching Sessions
This session does NOT count for GSIs looking to make up missed orienation training. This session is intended for individuals who will be facilitating practice teaching sessions at a CRLT or department teaching orientation, as part of other departmental GSI training/development, or in their role of GSM.
In a practice teaching session, instructors deliver informal lessons of five to twenty minutes to their peers. Participating instructors then offer each other feedback on their teaching while simultaneously reflecting on their own teaching. At this workshop, participants will learn how to run practice teaching sessions to maximize the benefit for GSIs. Participants will take part in an actual practice teaching session and discuss what makes a practice teaching session work best.
