TA Workshop

Before the semester begins in the fall there will be a mandatory ten day long TA Workshop run by the Mathematics Department for its new teaching assistants. Kelly MacArthur of the Mathematics Department is the main lecturer. Karl Schwede, Nat Smale and our Graduate Program Coordinator Paula Tooman will also participate. We will be joined by three experienced graduate student facilitators: Heather Brooks, Anna Nelson, and Derrick Wigglesworth. We will also be joined by an experienced post-doc: Adam Boocher. Guest lectures will be given by Tom Alberts, Maggie Cummings, Will Nesse, and Peter Trapa from Mathematics. The new TA's will present practice lectures (some of which will be videotaped) and write interactive practice lab assignments.
