Workshops on Teaching
The GSI Teaching and Resource Center's Workshops
on Teaching is a professional development series for GSIs.
These workshops cover a wide variety of topics related to university teaching
and the GSI experience. The purpose of the series is to offer GSIs, and
other graduate students interested in teaching, opportunities for hands-on
learning and practical discussion about pedagogy.
