Graduate Teaching Assistant Workshop Series

The GTA Workshop Series is created each semester based on feedback and needs indicated by Graduate Teaching Assistants. Approximately five workshops are offered per semester.

All workshops will be presented in a dynamic manner that models effective teaching strategies and allows opportunities for application and reflection. Presenters will include CETL staff, as well as SDSU faculty and SDSU graduate teaching assistants who excel in their teaching roles. All presenters will be familiar with the role GTAs play at South Dakota State University.

Spring 2019 GTA Writing Workshops

Teaching Philosophy Statements

The purpose of this writing workshop is to provide a process for determining and then documenting your Teaching Philosophy Statement. Submitting a Teaching Philosophy Statement is a typical requirement when applying for faculty positions. Knowing your teaching philosophy will also provide you with a strong foundation for responding to situations that arise in a teaching role. During this writing workshop, time will be allocated for attendees to reflect and write. For those who have already written a Teaching Philosophy Statement, a focus on revising and strengthening the current statement can be a focus.

Facilitator: Dr. Shelly Bayer, CETL
