More Info


Grading assignments and assigning grades are among the most significant challenges that new TAs and teachers face, but these tasks also represent an opportunity to engage with students and extend their critical thinking skills at a pivotal point in the quarter. This workshop is an opportunity for newer and less experienced TAs to get feedback and share ideas on grading strategies with others in a similar position. Moderated by a Searle Graduate Teaching Fellow, the focus of this workshop is more practical than theoretical, and participants are asked to bring guidelines for projects or exams they are currently grading or will soon be assessing in their courses.

This will be a brownbag workshop, so please bring your lunch.
