January 18, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 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.

Do you give a presentation, or do you give a lecture? What’s the difference, and how can you make a choice based on what your audience and learners need? Join us for an in depth workshop focusing on developing and refining your skills for both presentations and lectures. We will also be working with a variety of virtual tools to help make your presentations and lectures impactful, effective, and memorable.
