Many Teaching Assistants (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.
Write together. Connect to our grad writing community to stay focused and motivated!

Writing regularly helps with productivity and motivation. The Writing and Communication Centre hosts weekly group writing sessions for grad students. These loosely-structured sessions are designed to help grad students connect to a larger writing community, stay focused, and to keep making writing progress.
Have you ever had to deal with disruptions in your classroom, like talkative, confrontational and interruptive students, or students who arrive late and leave early? Most instructors face at least occasional classroom disruptions, with new faculty and teaching assistants being primary targets. Such challenges can be unpleasant and disturbing, but you can help to minimize their frequency and impact.
