Columbia’s Center for Teaching and Learning is holding orientation sessions in August for teaching assistants in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
Orientations provide an opportunity for new instructors to:
- Get familiar with instructional resources on campus, procedures and policies, and methods for getting a class off to a good start.
- Connect with other first-time instructors as well as teaching support staff at the CTL.
- Explore topics such as teaching for the first time, active learning, grading strategies and rubrics, syllabus design, tools for teaching and learning, among others.
