Attention Fall 2020 TAs and Graduate-student Instructors: If you will be grading student writing these webinars are for you!

Teaching with Writing Webinars for TAs: Two interactive webinars for graduate instructors (GIs) and teaching assistants (TAs) focus on commenting and grading student writing (papers, problem sets, lab reports, presentations, posters, etc.). Commenting on and Grading Writing (September 1, 2020) is offered to Teaching Assistants who assist with faculty-directed courses, either running sections or contributing in other ways. Assigning and Assessing Writing (September 2, 2020) is offered to TAs who serve as graduate student instructors for stand-alone courses. Participation is free, but you must register for one of the two sessions by August 25, 2020. Registered participants will be sent information before the webinar workshop.  (Offered through the Center for Writing.)
