Instructors concurrently teaching independent classes.
Day, Time and Room TBA
Note: This course is open to Political Science and Joint
PhD program students only.
Practicum (one credit)
This weekly one-hour seminar is meant to provide Associate
Instructors teaching independent sections with immediate support for
their teaching. Members of the seminar will gain information and
exchange ideas about various teaching techniques, methods of
lecturing and leading discussions, engaging students in the work of
their course, assessing students' learning through a variety of
types of exams and other assignments, dealing with individual
students and incidents of academic misconduct, grading, recording
grades, and all of the other issues that instructors face. AIs
teaching independent sections are expected to attend, but the
seminar is also open to AIs who anticipate teaching such a section
in an upcoming semester.
