As a Teaching Assistant Consultant, I have co-facilitated workshops for over 1,000 UC Davis graduate student and postdoctoral instructors. These workshops are focused on their personal and professional development as instructors and are designed to be interactive and useful to all experience levels and disciplines. In addition to this, I have done one-on-one consultations with several student and postdoctoral instructors including conducting mid-quarter interviews with their classes and video/presentation skills consultations.
