GSI OET Summer Workshop

An intensive 3-week course for prospective GSIs who are preparing to re-take the GSI OET exam in August.  ELI GSI Advisor permission required.

This workshop is primarily for graduate students who must complete a structured language course to be eligible to retake the GSI OET exam in August. It focuses on increasing the effectiveness  of language strategies necessary in teaching contexts such as delivering interactive lectures, managing group work, giving lab instructions, leading discussions, and conducting office hours. Participants learn to identify and practice their individual pronunciation features that create challenges for listeners. In-class work is supplemented by extensive practice assignments via the Canvas online learning management system.

Summer 2015 Dates: June 9 - June 25, Tuesday/Thursday, 10:00-12:00 (Six sessions).

NOTE: There is a $500 workshop fee for participation. Participants are encouraged to seek partial or full funding for the workshop fee from their respective department or sponsor.
