  • Cohort Prompts


    Due to the format of our workshops, it was difficult to build in reflection time with the TAs after the students left.


    What are some other approaches to nurturing and facilitating ongoing reflection among TAs and program staff?

  • Cohort Prompts


    Production work at professional DAWs is resource-intensive and difficult to scale. Our lesson on iPads felt like the most scalable of the 8 lessons.
