Hold the Date - Learning to Teach

Following on the success of last November’s Learning to Teach Day, Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GPS), and Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) will be offering another full day of sessions for graduate students who want to explore and develop their teaching skills on Sunday, March 15, 2009

As we go to press, the program details are not finalized, but will be shortly and will be publicized on the TLS website (www.mcgill.ca/tls).  This year the sessions are organized around two themes: Assessment & Feedback, and Developing Leadership Skills in Interactive Teaching Roles. As well, content will be adapted, where appropriate, to different disciplinary contexts. And, as in the past, there will be opportunities for networking with graduate students from across the University.
