Strange Encounters of TA Kind
- 12:30 PM to 1:45 PM
- Fisher 324
Facilitators: Christina Frasher and Adina Rubin-Budick (Psychology)
In this workshop, we will watch and discuss six vignettes produced by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln for TAs. The topics deal with difficult situations that TAs encounter, such as power dynamics with supervisors, grading situations, divergent belief systems and more. There will be dialogue around how TAs might respond to each situation and explore ways of preventing similar incidents from occurring. Teaching tips and techniques will be offered as well as how to navigate departmental issues.
