Welcome to the MT891 course website.  

Prerequisite: MT890, Graduate Teaching Seminar I.

Course description:  This seminar is directed at building the teaching skills of advanced graduate students, who are teaching their own classes.  Topics include:  preparation of a syllabus, preparation of an examination, assigning course grades, lecture organization and preparation, lecture delivery, classroom management.  The seminar will include both practice and case-studies based discussion.

This is one of two teaching seminars being offered by the department.  The other is MT890, Graduate Teaching Seminar I. 
Sometimes we will meet together, and on those days we will cover common topics.  On other days we will break up into separate groups and pursue aspects of teaching that are relevant to more advanced graduate students.
