Writing an Effective Worksheet Panel

Scott Ahlgren, Hannah Burson, Stefan Klajbor, Itziar Ochoa de Alaiza, (Illinois Math)

Abstract: Have you ever wondered what makes a worksheet effective? What are the important aspects to consider when designing a worksheet for a large or small section? In this session we would like to open the conversation between experienced TA's and faculty on what are important aspects on writing a worksheet in different scenarios (large lecture, regular and Merit discussion). * This panel will count towards the requirement of Additional Teaching Development for the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) certificates. You may bring your application or sign the attendance sheet provided at the event. (http://citl.illinois.edu/citl-101/teaching-learning/teaching-certificates/graduate-teacher-certificate)

Navigating Culture in the Classroom

Dong Dong, Paulina Koutsaki, Marissa Loving, Bruce Reznick (Illinois Math)

Abstract: The goal of this panel is to provide an informal space of discussion on how different cultures and experiences can shape interactions in the classroom. Having a diverse population of students can present both challenges and successes in developing as an instructor or Teaching Assistant. We hope through this panel, we can share experiences on how culture influences teaching, interactions with students, and share ideas on how to create a classroom environment that fosters learning mathematics and is culturally responsive. *This panel will count towards the requirement of Additional Teaching Development for the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) certificates. You may bring your application or sign the attendance sheet provided at the event. (http://citl.illinois.edu/citl-101/teaching-learning/teaching-certificates/graduate-teacher-certificate)
