Webinar: Teaching Assistants in the Time of COVIDHistorians in the News
tags: AHA, graduate students, teaching history, Webinars
The everyday challenges of teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic are compounded in large, multi-section, introductory courses taught by faculty and teaching assistants. Often the main point of contact for students, TAs are on the front lines of dealing with student's emotional, personal, and technological struggles and, like faculty, are adjusting to new instructional formats. The pandemic has made clear just how important coordination and faculty support for TAs is to undergraduate learning and the professional development of graduate teaching assistants. Join us for a discussion between faculty responsible for TA-training and current graduate students about how to effectively mentor TAs during and after the pandemic. Registration for this event will open soon.
