CTL Graduate Student Orientation (Humanities, Social Sciences)

Orientation Overview

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is pleased to offer new Teaching Fellows and Assistants an orientation designed to supplement department-based orientation and training. Topics include tactics to get classes off to a good start, best practices in feedback and grading, introduction to active learning principles and approaches, inventories of teaching policies and resources at Columbia, and guidance for using CourseWorks. Experienced Teaching Fellows are also on hand to answer questions and offer advice.

Microteaching Practice Sessions

A limited number of microteaching practice slots are available after the main orientation (from 2:15 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.); to take advantage of this opportunity to receive individual feedback, please also sign up for a microteaching slot and prepare a brief (five minutes maximum) lecture, demonstration, or learning activity to try out.
