Teaching in Teams: Working with Graduate and Undergraduate Students as Instructors

Working with a team of Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) and/or undergraduate teaching/learning assistants (UTAs and ULAs) creates instructional opportunities in a course that may not be possible otherwise. In this session, we will study examples of instructional teams from U-M and other universities and identify benefits, challenges and best practices. We will examine the process of developing a teaching team, including planning roles and responsibilities for GSIs and UTAs, selection and initial training, interaction and support as the course is being taught, and feedback and evaluation. We will also explore the role of identity in relationships among faculty, GSIs, UTAs, and students.
