Sample schedule for Michigan's intensive, week-long teaching institute for graduate teaching assistants and postdocs who are new instructors in the calculus sequence.
Watching authentic video of mathematics teaching enlivens any professional development program and catalyzes deep conversations about pedagogy. Partnered with research-based readings, these video cases (accompanied by facilitator guides) help college mathematics instructors build their knowledge of student thinking and advance their strategies for engaging students.

This Teaching for Robust Understanding (TRU) Observation Guide is designed to support instructors, teaching leaders/providers of TA training, and professional learning communities in conducting and reflecting on classroom observations. It is based on the Teaching for Robust Understanding (TRU) Framework (see http://map.mathshell.org/trumath.php).
These are .TeX files of two lectures from my linear algebra class. They can be distributed to graduate students who want style/format tips if they are using fill in the blank style notes in their classroom.
Time Frame: 50 minute seminar
Overall Topic(s): Creating Meaningful Mathematical Tasks
At the end of this session, GSIs will be able to
- Determine a low-level and high-level cognitively demanding task when looking at a lesson plan.
- Write a high-level task.
- High-Low Cognitive Demand Handout
Outline, Possible Timing, & Important Points to Remember:
This is an example of the lesson study generated by mathematics graduate student instructors (GSIs).
