Many TAs in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines are responsible for teaching tutorial sessions. However, running tutorials can pose unique challenges for TAs. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss how to create an effective tutorial environment and present ways of maximizing student participation. Participants in this session will also be equipped with practical strategies for planning, running, and assessing their tutorials, with special attention being given to interactive teaching strategies that can be used in any classroom.
