Everything You Wanted to Know about Teaching IAH But Were Afraid to Ask (Part II)

Schedule: 25 September, 2 PM – 4 PM (via Zoom), with Liz Deegan and Asif Iqbal

This workshop will serve as a follow-up to the workshop held for new graduate students and those teaching MSU’s Integrative Arts and Humanities Classes. It will provide a space for talking through how your first few weeks as a recitation leader/ new graduate student have gone. This year we will mostly be talking about the positives and the downsides of online instruction for the IAH classes. We will follow-up on some of the issues we discussed in Part I of the workshop including maintaining 20 hours a week schedule of work, responding to student emails, communication with the faculty of record, grading loads and other issues that came up during teaching.
