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.

Additional information: Registration is required.
