Participants will be recommended by IGSI workshop coordinators and/or screening evaluators. Individual observation of teaching, with and without video, and consultations are the primary mode of instruction, with additional seminar meeting to discuss issues of common concern to all enrolled, such as getting and using mid-semester feedback from students.

ELI 994, College Teaching in the US: Pedagogy, Culture & Language, is a one-credit intensive course for international graduate students who have been nominated for graduate student instructor appointments in departments in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. A three-week intensive GSI training workshop is offered in August collaboratively with CRLT. The content focuses on the language, pedagogy and culture of instructional contexts in a U.S. university.

The three primary objectives of the workshop are to provide:

  1. perspectives on U.S. undergraduates, campus culture and resources;
  2. increased awareness and control of the language of the classroom (instructional discourse); and
  3. hands-on experiences for teaching in a U.S. undergraduate setting.

Over the years, we‚ have learned from workshop participants that the amount of reading & homework required during the intense weeks of the workshop can be overwhelming. Therefore, we have set up this "CourseTools" website to provide you with some of the materials prior to your arrival in the workshop. These materials can be found in the Resources section of the website: http://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2001/fall/eli/994.nsf .

The three primary objectives of this online component are to provide you with

  1. ample time to become familiar with some of the required readings;
  2. an opportunity to sample some classroom language materials before the workshop; and
  3. links to useful sites for GSIs at the University of Michigan.

This online component includes questions to guide you through the readings and a few exploratory exercises to jumpstart your English language engine.

INFORMATION
The ELI will register one credit for all participants who complete the training program. This credit will be registered in the Fall semester following your successful completion of the workshop. The web address for general information and the workshop registration form is http://www.lsa.umich.edu/eli/gsi/gsi.htm

For any questions about this website, contact Pamela Bogart, August Workshop Coordinator, at pbogart@umich.edu.
