For Teaching Assistants preparing to teach online this semester, the Center for Teaching and Learning is offering a special set of workshops in September. These sessions will introduce some of the technological tools TAs are likely to need as they teach online: tools for synchronous class sessions, asynchronous engagement and managing Canvas. The list of sessions and registration links are below.

Additional teaching workshops for graduate students can be found at CTL’s events website. For more guidance on teaching online, visit CTL’s online teaching website. If you have questions about these programs or other CTL support for teaching, write to ctl-help@lists.upenn.edu.
