The EE workshops are designed to support faculty who wish to incorporate Experiential Education into their teaching, either in the classroom or in the community. The Bootcamp combines the content of Introduction to Experiential Education and Experiential Education: Reflection and Assessment.
In the first half of the workshop, we will define EE and its three foci in the context of York, discuss the theory informing EE, and consider the critical role of structured reflection in experiential education. In the second half, we will brainstorm ideas for reflective activities and consider how to evaluate experiential learning. The workshop will be delivered via presentations, videos and hands-on activities designed to help participants develop an EE course that includes reflective learning and its assessment, for both in-class and community focused EE. All bootcamps run from 10AM to 3PM.

This TA Orientation session is one of 5 repeat sessions open to all new TAs.
Participants will learn more about the roles and responsibilities of being a TA at York. They will get a chance to share their fears or uncertainties about their new roles with other new TAs and discuss strategies to overcome them, with guidance from an experienced TA. Participants will also be given different scenarios of what could happen during their TAship and they will work with their peers to determine what they would do.
