Dispute resolution about grades

TAGEN - TA General Events

TAs will occasionally encounter students who dispute their final mark on an assignment. This workshop prepares you to face such encounters and provides tools and strategies to resolve disputes effectively and professionally. We will explore different case scenarios and discuss methods to handle each, and will include some practical role-play to make you feel comfortable handling disputes about grades in your role as a TA.

Strategies for the First Class

TT - Teaching Tips

As an instructor, you might be tempted to dismiss the special significance of your first meeting with your class and not take advantage of the opportunity that it provides to set a positive and engaging beginning to your course. First impressions are important and, particularly in a large class, difficult to change. We will discuss the "do's-and-don'ts" for the first class and consider the impact of different strategies. Come prepared to compare notes on how best to establish an optimal start to a course.
