This workshop focuses on classroom language, culture and pedagogy for prospective LSA GSIs whose undergraduate education was not English-medium. The Winter course/workshop is designed for students currently enrolled at the U of M who are candidates to teach the following Fall/Winter term; the three-week August course/workshop is for new students who are candidates to teach their first Fall/Winter term on campus. Students learn:

  1. to increase awareness and control of the language of the classroom;
  2. what the expectations are of GSIs, the University of Michigan's diverse undergraduate population, campus culture and resources; and
  3. a diverse array of teaching skills in a University of Michigan undergraduate setting informed by current pedagogical theories.

Students learn to practice effective classroom communication skills and reflective teaching, with language and teaching feedback from peers, undergraduates and instructors. Course assignments include videotaped practice teaching and feedback, office hour role-plays, observations and discussing with practicing GSIs and GSMs, discussions with undergraduates and individual work based on individual student goals and department-specific teaching contexts.

Note: Non-LSA students interested in this type of course should enroll in ELI 380.
