Friday, November 9, 2018
10:00 am - 1:00 pm EST


Please note: Follow up meetings will be held on Friday, November 16th between 12pm and 4pm. You will sign up for the follow up meeting at the end of the Microteaching II session. Please do not register for this session if you are not available on November 16th for a follow up meeting.

Each Microteaching II: Effective Lesson Planning and Delivery session will involve 4 – 5 graduate student participants and 2 TATP facilitators. (One TATP facilitator runs the recording equipment and the other focuses on assessing the lesson.) In this option, each participant must prepare a Microteaching II Lesson Plan Template in advance of the session and provide the TATP facilitators in the session with a copy of this lesson plan prior to delivering the lesson. Participants will then take turns teaching for 15 (fifteen) minutes in front of their peers and a TATP facilitator. Each 15-minute lesson will be recorded, however, the video of the lesson will not be played back in the session. Immediately following the lesson, all participants will be given a few minutes to complete the Microteaching II feedback form. The instructor will also complete the form, writing down what he/she thought worked well in the lesson and what she/he thought could be improved. The instructor will then give a brief 2-minute verbal self-assessment following which he/she will receive brief verbal comments from each peer in the session and comments from the TATP facilitator. The participant will then end the session with a final self-assessment in light of the comments just received. Each presenter will keep the written forms at the end of the session. At a follow-up consultation, the instructors will receive the form completed by the TATP facilitator.
