Looking for an opportunity to develop and improve your teaching practices?

Missed the Fundamentals of Teaching Series in Autumn?


Have no fear, Fundamentals of Teaching Winter Edition is here! All graduate student teaching assistants and instructors from across all Schools and Divisions, particularly those new to teaching at the University of Chicago, are invited to attend.

In four interdisciplinary sessions, we will collaboratively discuss and explore the following questions:

  1. How do we present course content at a level that is appropriate for our students and builds upon their prior knowledge?
  2. What are best practices for creating useful and transparent learning objectives?
  3. How do we create an inclusive classroom that actively engages all students and enhances student learning?
  4. How can we assess students in a way that is constructive and facilitates learning?

During each of these sessions, we will explore key topics in teaching, engage in activities that will allow you to apply these concepts, and address any current questions or concerns you may have about teaching.
