Upcoming Event

CTLgrads Journal Club 

This spring, CTLgrads Journal Club (in partnership with Language Lounge) is diving into literature on teaching from Discipline-Based Education Research (or DBER). In our discussions, we are focusing on how we can draw on peer-reviewed research into our teaching practice. On April 22, we will continue our discussion on Online Teaching and Learning, specifically looking at practical methods we might be able to use in our own practice.

Resources we’ll discuss:

This session counts as a pedagogy workshop for the Teaching Development Program (TDP)

Date: Wednesday, April 22
Time: 4:10 PM – 5:25 PM
Location: via Zoom

Support for TAs Teaching Online

The CTL has put together a resource for graduate student Teaching Assistants who are supporting classes that have shifted online. It provides an overview of considerations, approaches, and tools that can help keep you connected to students and their learning. We invite you to look at this resource as well as others available on CTL’s Contingency Planning: Teaching Online portal. 

For further guidance, there are several ways for graduate students to reach out: visit Office Hours via Zoom, request a one-on-one consultation, request a teaching observation, or email us at
