Communicating with Students
Faculty and TAs communicate with undergraduates in a variety of contexts: in class, in labs, in office hours, in syllabi, in assignment descriptions, through email, and by providing feedback on coursework. Considering that student-teacher interactions are such an essential aspect of any course, it's important for us to consider how our words shape students' learning experiences. Communicating effectively with students takes planning and practice, so in this workshop, we will discuss a variety of scenarios and think through how we can maintain a supportive learning environment even when communication challenges arise.
