Teaching assistants (TAs) have a full plate with their teaching responsibilities and the demands of graduate school. It can be difficult to get them to focus on learning how to teach. A course in teaching methods is a convenient way to provide needed training under the umbrella of their graduate education. This talk will describe such a course and how it has affected the teaching performance of its students.
