Topics in College Teaching Series

The Topics in College Teaching Series is a forum for sharing pedagogical insights, experiences, concerns, and questions.  It is also an opportunity to meet with and learn from graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) from across the University.  These sessions are not workshops; there are no formal presentations.  The intent is to promote an intellectually vibrant conversation in a relaxed and informal setting.
