Today’s university classrooms contain students from all over the world. Expectations regarding teacher behaviours vary across cultures, institutions, and disciplines. In this 20-hour workshop, teaching assistants and graduate students learn to present more effectively by developing their teaching and intercultural communication skills. By participating in this workshop, you will be able to:

  • enhance your instructional skills and teaching communication;
  • respond to student questions effectively;
  • feel more confident about your presentation skills; and
  • acquire strategies for delivering and accepting constructive feedback on teaching and presentations.

Workshop activities include teaching for 10 minutes on a topic in your discipline and responding to questions from your audience.
