What to Expect 

This workshop is designed to help beginning TFs in the humanities build confidence in the classroom and develop practices of reflection about their teaching. We will discuss how to create an inclusive class environment, how to communicate expectations and develop learning goals, how to use assessments and collect feedback, and what skills and tasks are specific to teaching the humanities. We will also devote some time to workshopping and problem-shooting participants’ own experiences in the classroom. For more information, please email masha.shpolberg@yale.edu or michael.rapoport@yale.edu.

Participating in at least three of the four sessions is required for the Certificate of College Teaching Preparation (CCTP).
