Teaching in the U.S. Classroom: A workshop for international TAs

Date: Thursday, October 31
Time: 3:00pm – 4:30pm
Location: Center for Teaching
Facilitator: Nayana Bose
Audience: Graduate and Professional Students and Post-docs

The workshop is designed to help international TAs effectively navigate the US classroom and gain a better
understanding of Vanderbilt undergraduates.
We will explore common sources of misconception about US undergraduates and see how International TAs and faculty have adapted to successfully teach in the US and enjoy this experience. We will also specifically discuss strategies and tips to deal with some of the problems TAs face while grading, holding office hours, and conducting review sessions.
