GTI Microteaching

Category: Teaching Engagement Department: Academic Affairs - Teaching Engagement Program
Description:

Microteaching provides graduate students enrolled in TEP's Graduate Teaching Initiative (GTI) an opportunity to pilot a new lesson or teaching technique in front of 2-3 peers and a member of TEP. These peers will give you feedback on your teaching and help you reflect on how to improve or implement the particular lesson. You will then switch roles with one of the peers and observe and provide feedback to your peers.

Microteaching sessions are opportunities for experimentation and collaborative reflection; they are not meant to be formal, evaluative spaces of your worth as a teacher or your peer’s worth. Think of microteaching as a “drill” to hone your skills or a “rehearsal” for more important performances in actual classrooms. The whole point is to try something new in a space where “success” and “failure” are equally useful and rewarding. If, for example, you demo an exercise that your peers find confusing, or downright unclear, this allows you space to explore potential improvements before you actually try it out on a class full of undergraduate students.

Prerequisite:

To register for a microteaching session, you must be a graduate student enrolled in TEP's Graduate Teaching Initiative (GTI).
