Graduate Student Workshops: Dealing with the Reality of your Dream Class
Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Fisher-Bennett Hall 330 (Graduate Lounge)

Bronwyn Wallace, doctoral candidate and Lecturer, English

Convener: Dianne Mitchell, CTL Graduate Fellow, English

We all began the semester with a dream of what our class would be like. Now, how to deal with the reality? We’ll talk about the importance of setting achievable goals for your course in syllabus design and lesson planning, how and whether to differentiate your intellectual interests from the work of instructing undergrads, and even some ways of coping with the feeling of having an unsuccessful class – something that happens to us all.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the English department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
