Workshop description

This session will be of interest to graduate students who are getting ready to teach their first course as instructors during the next year. It will include a series of panel presentations by graduate students, who successfully taught their first course at Waterloo, as well as group discussions of common scenarios from the classroom. By the end of the session, participants will have discussed common challenges faced by first-time instructors, identified strategies for addressing them and developed ideas for getting their courses off to a great start.
