Building on the strategies introduced during the first session, which took place during the Fall Orientation, this follow-up session will focus on how to collect formative feedback from your supervisor and your students. To do so, students will participate in a gallery walk through some of the questions and concerns raised during the first session. Students will have the opportunity to offer their own solutions to each gallery item based on what they have learned so far during their teaching assistantship.
Rubrics are explicit sets of criteria that are used to evaluate student assignments in a fair and objective way. Rubrics communicate your expectations to students early on and during the marking process they can save you a lot of time. During this short interactive workshop we will go over the basics of designing rubrics and examine examples of rubrics from different fields of study.
This non-credit course will provide instructors with information and ideas for teaching online, whether the intention is to teach a course exclusively online, or simply to incorporate online components. Experience teaching online is not required. Introduction to Teaching Online is offered entirely online through Blackboard. As a participant you will experience what it is like to learn online which will help you become familiar with the environment your students will encounter in their online learning.
The aim of this short course is to bring together a community of teachers (including graduate students, faculty, sessional lecturers, advisors, and staff) who are interested in developing and discussing a reflective teaching or advising practice. During the course, teachers will reflect on their approach and philosophy and the ways in which their beliefs, values, and goals affect their pedagogical decisions in the classroom.
Your course syllabi can be very important to the students in your classes, providing them with information on assignments, quizzes and exams, your office hours and other valuable information about the class. But, your syllabus can also show students about who you are as a person and an instructor through its format and tone.
The University of Saskatchewan Academic Courses Policy details the requirements of what should be included in every syllabus. This session will look at creating a course syllabus with this policy in mind.
Dedicated third space work time for faculty and instructors. Bring your teaching project, course design plans, or any other teaching related work you have to the GMCTE during this time. Our staff will be available to help you with your work, if you need.
