Workshop Series

Graduate Teaching Assistant Workshop Series

Students sitting in a classroom

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. If you are not a GTA, but a graduate student interested in teaching, you are welcome to attend!
