Many graduate students experience low confidence in roles as teaching assistants and instructors, as they suddenly find themselves in the role of the "expert", rather than the learner. In this workshop, we will first explore the common roots of this lack of confidence. We will then consider different ways of thinking and strategies that can help all of us to increase our confidence in the classroom.
Registration: Registration is required and will open on June 13, 2019.
Conferences present excellent occasions to network with a variety of people, but many are unfamiliar with what to expect at conferences and how to maximize opportunities to engage. We will explore some networking basics with a focus on how to maximize the opportunities that present themselves during academic and professional conferences.
