Event Description

Full Description:
The Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTA) program is designed to foster the next generation of great teachers. The program provides participants with the knowledge and skills to motivate and engage with students, embed active learning practices into teaching, manage group dynamics, give and receive feedback, and design assessment and evaluation.

This showcase and panel event will highlight the benefits for post-doc and current PhD students of acquiring teaching skills for their academic career development. By formally acquiring teaching skills through the program, participants will have a cutting-edge advantage to tutor at UQ or other higher education institutions.

The showcase will include explanations of the following:
- The structure and organisation of GTA program
- The time commitment to attend the GTA program
- The benefits of participating in the program.

A panel discussion with former students will focus on the advantages of the program to their career.

A selected numbers of GTAs will showcase their learning through a poster presentation, which include lesson planning, active learning techniques, and using technologies in teaching.
