The aim of this session is to provide teaching assistants with resources and strategies for inquiry, ELL, classroom management, and environmental engagement support in learning communities.
The role of teaching assistants is pivotal in maximizing learning in the classroom. Our 5 week Deep Dive will provide opportunities for participants to build a professional playbook, or toolkit, for teaching assistants. Our weekly synchronous workshops will provide teaching assistants with opportunities to interact and collaborate with colleagues from around the continent whilst learning good practices to use in the classroom. The asynchronous explorations will support our discussions from the sessions and provide tangible strategies for classroom implementation.
As a result of attending this deep dive session, participants will explore:
The AISA online Deep Dives are a balanced mix of Synchronous (interactive online learning involving external expert and peer to peer collaboration) and Asynchronous (distance, self-paced and peer-to-peer learning) learning facilitated over a period of 5 weeks.
