As LWTA:

For the 2019-2020 Academic year, I served as Lead Writing TA (LWTA) for the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Professor Andrea Williams. The philosophy LWTA serves as a liaison between the Writing Instruction by/for TAs (WIT) program at the University of Toronto, and the Department of Philosophy. In this role I consulted and advised course instructors on syllabus and assignment design, and conducted training and held regular teaching meetings for WIT course TAs. In 2019-2020 I was the LWTA for 7 courses and 21 teaching Assistants for the Department of Philosophy.

 

In April 2020 I organized and ran a syllabus and assignment design workshop for new (graduate student) course instructors in the Department of Philosophy. Due to Covid-19 and a quick transition to online teaching, this workshop focused primarily on teaching online course and assignment design, and the provision of online teaching resources for instructors.
