Checking Our Work: An Introduction to Researching Your Own Teaching

January 19, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


This event is part of the CTLT TA Institute, taking place from January 17–21. To view all events, visit https://institute.ctlt.ubc.ca/ta-institute/january-2022-ta-institute/

Eligibility: The TA Institute is open to all undergraduate TAs, graduate students who are interested in teaching, and all graduate student TAs. This session is not open to general undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff, or faculty.

Have you ever wondered if something is actually working in your teaching or why students respond a certain way? In this session we’ll explore the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and how to connect your own experience as a researcher to collecting evidence of your own teaching practices. We will identify areas of interest to you and explore potential questions and research methods. This particular session is helpful to anyone considering doing a Teaching as Research project or being part of the Teaching Practicum.

– Natalie Westwood, PhD Candidate, Faculty of Science
