Welcome to the new teaching assistants at the University of Florida. (And welcome to all of you who are new to teaching this semester.)
I appreciated the UF Graduate School and UF Teaching Center inviting me to be on the program for the UF TA Orientation — speaking on “A Positive Start to Your Teaching: Your Syllabus and the First Week of Classes.”
Thanks to the more than 400 teaching assistants in my session for their attention, their involvement, and their questions.
Here are my slides for the presentation — Dr. Julie Dodd’s slides – UF TA Orientation 2016
Here is my handout — Dr. Julie Dodd’s handout – UF TA Orientation 2016
I’ll follow up on some of the questions asked in a future blog post.
I hope the new TAs will take advantage of the optional sessions being offered:
- “Teaching for Teaching in UF Classrooms” – Aug. 18, 10 a.m. to noon, Turlington L005
- “International TAs in UF Classrooms” – Aug. 18, 2 to 4 p.m., Turlington L005
- “e-Learning@UF: Getting Started, Intermediate & Advanced” – Aug. 19, HUB 221
