Workshop description

Effective communication is an important skill for all Teaching Assistants (TAs). In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to identify your communication strengths and areas for development. We will discuss common challenges to effective communication that are encountered by TAs, and help you select appropriate strategies to address these challenges in the classroom.
