Instructional Skills Workshop: How to do a loon call, send E-Mail, and drift

Over the last three days I participated in the Graduate Teaching Assistant Instructional Skills Workshop here at Brock University. It was a great way to reflect on my own teaching, build on my existing skills and benefit from the experiences of others.

The workshop involves 10 people, split into groups of 5. In those small groups participants give short 10-minute lessons on anything so that they can demonstrate their teaching and gain feed back.

My three mini-lessons were:

  1. How to make a Loon call by blowing through your hands.

  2. How E-Mail is sent across the Internet. I did this one without the benefit of technology.
  3. “Drifting” or how to slide a car sideways around a corner.
