Have you ever left your classroom feeling unsettled because your lesson didn’t go at all like you planned it? During today’s session you will have an opportunity to dig deeper into the root causes of a teaching challenge that has been troubling you. Come join our International Group Series for this conversation with other faculty, post-docs, and graduate TAs. Together we will engage with the “5 Whys” technique to collaboratively problem-solve your teaching challenges, and identify teaching strategies that are appropriate for your classroom.

Co-sponsored by the Institute for Teaching Excellence & Development (TEFD) and the Graduate School Office of Professional Development. Light refreshments available.
