About the positionIn this position, I worked as the Social Sciences Facilitator for the Summer Teaching Institute for Associates (STIA). STIA is a flexible pedagogy program designed to help first-time graduate student instructors design and implement their summer courses. While participating in STIA, instructors review and evaluate their course design and expand their repertoire of teaching and evaluation strategies through a mix of asynchronous peer feedback and in-person workshops and trainings.
