Language barriers have been considered as one of the biggest obstacles for international TAs. However, many researches have proven that the improvement of language proficiency cannot solve all the problems, because many problems are actually caused by a lack of communications skills. Developing effective communication skills can improve ITAs’ teaching significantly even with a limited vocabulary. Join presenter Annie Laurie Nichols of University of Maryland for this live online discussion aimed at International TAs. Teaching in the US is a webinar series about teaching at North American universities, held monthly by live webconference between graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and staff at the 22 CIRTL Network universities. Anyone is welcome to join in via a web browser or the Blackboard Collaborate app. Headset or microphone strongly recommended - contact email@example.com to borrow equipment.
