Since 1990, thousands of faculty members and teaching assistants new to
the University of Virginia have had their paths smoothed and their concerns
addressed at the August Teaching Workshop. These two half-days, sponsored by the Teaching Resource Center and the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Development,
engage colleagues from around the University in a range of interactive
workshops. These sessions are:
to answer some of your questions about teaching at UVa and to provoke
for both experienced and less experienced teachers
to introduce you to new colleagues
- geared to
the distinct needs of faculty and TAs
- most effective
in concert with specific, departmental workshops
on issues relevant to teaching any subject matter:
your discipline effectively
the first day
to know your students
potential problems and pitfalls
We hope that,
like us, you see these meetings as not only an opportunity to learn about
teaching but also an excellent chance to begin your academic life at UVa.
Enriching our intellectual community has been a driving theme of the Faculty
Senate, and the Teaching Resource Center has longstanding programs that
bring faculty and teaching assistants together across academic disciplines
for fruitful exchanges of ideas.
