Graduate Teaching Assistants, you are doing incredible work and many of you have developed teaching strategies, worked with new technology, have found new and innovative ways to run your labs, your recitations, and facilitate learning for teaching remotely.

We would like to have a Lunch and Learn every Wednesday at noon to learn new pedagogy, new teaching strategies, ask Questions and/or discuss brief education articles (no longer than five pages). This is a place to share with Graduate Teaching Assistants and anyone interested in becoming one some great teaching ideas.

Topic for this session:

Tools for Student Engagement in the Online Space

In this Lunch and Learn Best Practices we would like to share Online Engagement Tools, from polling to short video production, to just retooling face-to-face activities for the Online space.


  • Try out and/or participate in online engagement activities to be applied to instructional settings.
  • Discuss how you will use two tools in your specific role as teaching assistant or learner.

When you register, in the 'Comments' field of the registration form, please indicate if you would like to share a brief 5-7-minute student engagement practice.
