Winter Workshop Series-- Student Engagement: Mission Possible

This winter the TA Consultants will offer a 6 part workshop series focused on ways to engage students in their learning. We hope to attract participants from across campus and would especially welcome GTC members! There is more information below and you can register your interest in the workshops here.

Student Engagement: Mission Possible

Winter Workshop Series for Graduate Students

Thursdays, January 20 - February 24, 2010

3-5 pm

Room 1310 Surge III

This workshop series focuses on helping instructors engage and empower their students. Participants will explore different methods for creating positive, inclusive learning environments. You will be encouraged to step outside your teaching ‘comfort zone’ and experiment with different methods for improving student learning. The objective is to provide participants with new tools and strategies to implement in their classrooms. Individuals from all disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to attend these workshops, and those who attend five of the six sessions will be awarded a certificate from the UC Davis Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL).
