Learning Community

Graduate Student Learning Community

CTE learning communities are small, peer-led groups of instructors who come together to discuss particular teaching topics, issues, or practices. This semester, the CTE is sponsoring a community for graduate student teachers that will focus on unpacking the hidden curriculum of being a TA. The goal of this community is to provide a casual, supportive environment where we can share activities and resources, workshop ideas, and discuss teaching concerns that come up over the course of the semester.

Each meeting, we will start with a teaching problem, work-in-progress presentation, or “show-and-tell” from a graduate student teacher (either an invited guest or a member of the group). From there, we will workshop ideas, give supportive feedback, and discuss how similar activities or principles could apply to our own discipline.
