Meghan is a PhD student in the department of English Language and Literature, where she studies speculative fiction, composition, and postcolonial literature. She is excited to begin her new role as a TA Workshop Facilitator, a position she pursued because her own teaching and learning experiences were enriched by participating in the Fundamentals of University Teaching and Certificate in University Teaching programs – in particular, she found that her assessments and course design improved immensely after taking “Assessing Student Learning” and “Course Design.”
Meghan is also the founder of a new English department support network for Teaching Assistants and Graduate Instructors, along with Graduate Instructional Developer, Tommy Mayberry.
In addition to holding a teaching certificate in secondary education from the state of Michigan, Meghan has experience in curriculum development, instruction, and tutoring. At the University of Waterloo, Meghan has served as a Teaching Assistant and Graduate Instructor for Introduction to Academic Writing, and a Marking Assistant in Women’s Studies.
Meghan’s goals as a TA Workshop Facilitator include making classroom participation more effective for introverted teachers and students and helping graduate students develop lesson plans for multiple intelligences.
