Just-in-Time Workshops

Just-in-Time Workshops are offered in August during the two weeks before classes start. They focus on topics that are high priority at the start of the year and are designed to help UA instructors get the semester off to a great start. 


Each Just-in-Time Workshop includes a blend of best teaching practices and practical "how-to" information. Participants are guided to use the information during the workshops and have ample opportunities to ask questions. The workshops are open to any UA instructors, including graduate teaching assistants. Note that one workshop is specifically for TAs.
