TA Program Coffee Hour: Motivating Students after Spring Break

March 28, 2024 at 3:00pm4:00pm EDT

Lyman Hall, 303

This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

During the TA orientation, the Teaching Mentor staff covers a wide breadth of topics that Teaching Assistants will (and have) encountered in their classrooms and labs. To continue these conversations, the TA Program announces the return of the Teaching Assistant Coffee Hour, an informal and friendly space where TMs and TAs can dive deeper into many TA-relevant themes.

TAs will have an opportunity to share their experiences with peers and collaboratively workshop with a supportive group of teaching mentors and teaching assistants!

We hope you join us each month to meet peers from different disciplines across campus to share your experiences, listen and learn from others, and discuss new strategies to implement in your classes!  Light refreshments will be provided.


This coffee hour will provide a chance to workshop ideas about how to motivate your students post-spring break. If you feel like your students have “checked out” and you’re struggling to keep them motivated to finish the semester strong, come and workshop ideas on how to keep your students (and yourself) inspired as we enter the second half of the spring semester.
