In the social sciences, TAs have a great deal of control over the style of their tutorials and how effective they can be for students. What does an effective tutorial entail? What are some of the different strategies a TA can follow to provide a productive learning environment?
In this interactive workshop, we will define what exactly is meant by “effective” tutorial. We will then proceed by outlining and assessing a number of strategies, from planning to implementation, that allow TAs to foster a productive learning environment for students. We conclude the workshop by designing an effective tutorial, in small group activities. This workshop will engage participants in small group discussions.
This workshop is open to all TAs in the social sciences.
This workshop will count towards the Teaching Commons ‘Record of Completion’ certificate
