Fall Conference: Thursday Focus Session Choices
Interactive Teaching Strategies
How can you interact with your students to engage their interest and encourage active learning? This session will focus on strategies for effectively asking and responding to questions, providing feedback, and facilitating pair and group activities.
International GSI Perspectives
In this session a panel of International GSIs will reflect on their experiences teaching at Berkeley, what they enjoyed most, and any difficulties they encountered and how they addressed them.
Campus Resources to Support Teaching and Learning
This session will enable participants to have a better understanding of the resources that are available on the Berkeley campus to support both GSIs and students. A panel of campus professionals from several different offices will be available to answer participants’ questions.
Using Your Voice Effectively
Would you like to improve your public speaking voice? This session focuses on strategies that will help you to speak with clarity and confidence.
What do undergrads think about? Where do they live? How many hours do they study each week? What challenges do they face and what do they expect from you as their GSI? In this session participants will meet a panel of undergraduates who will answer questions about what it is like being an undergraduate at UC Berkeley.
