TA Professional Development rotating lead TAs to building TA experience
Share-Out and Reflection provided best practices for structure and student leadership
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?
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.
What are some ways that other organizations are thinking about spread & scale of resource-intensive work?
