Crafting a Teaching Persona

Hailey Otis
The Latin word “persona” most directly translates to “mask.” What kind of mask should we wear while teaching? Should we wear a mask while teaching? How much of our teaching persona should be our authentic personality and how much of it should be a mask? How do we develop a teaching style that works for us as instructors and is also conducive to student learning? These questions are particularly salient for Graduate Teaching Assistants who may not be much older than their students and/or may not perceive themselves as having much more experience than their students. Together, we will explore what it means to put on a mask and to embrace a persona that strikes the right balance between your authentic self and the masked authority figure needed to effectively manage a classroom. Lunch will be provided. This workshop counts toward the Graduate Teaching Certificate. PLEASE ONLY REGISTER IF YOU ARE A GRADUATE STUDENT
