Recitation can be an essential opportunity for students to get individual instruction from teaching assistants and to interact with peers. However, making effective use of this time can be challenging even for experienced instructors. In this interactive workshop, participants will discuss the purpose of recitation, describe what students do during effective recitations, and design activities that better align class time with learning goals. This workshop is led by Christopher Chen, Graduate Learning Fellow at Princeton University’s McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.
