*THE FOUNDATIONS SERIES

This series of five 90-minute workshops is designed with the novice teacher in mind. Each workshop provides an introduction into key concepts and strategies for developing an evidence-based teaching practice. All first-time teachers are encouraged to attend this series. 

The five workshops that comprise the series are:

  • How Students Learn
  • Creating Inclusive Classrooms
  • The Nuts and Bolts of Lesson Planning
  • Active Learning Strategies (choose one of the three versions below)
    • for Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (focuses on text-based discussion strategies)
    • for Labs (focuses on strategies specific to the laboratory setting)
    • for STEM discussion sections (focuses on problem-based discussion strategies)
  • Assessment and Grading

While each workshop is a self-contained unit and it is not necessary to attend the workshops in any particular order, the order above is suggested in order to provide the most support to novice teachers' learning. Full descriptions for each of these workshops can be found on the TA Training Program website.
