Oral Skills Non-credit Course for International Teaching Assistants
The non-credit course, Oral Skills for International Teaching Assistants, offers extensive practice in English pronunciation and presentation skills, and the course includes familiarization with academic culture and norms.
The class meets weekly for one two-hour session and each participant also meets weekly one-on-one with the instructor for individual practice and feedback on speaking skills. Each student will take the UW-Milwaukee Teaching Assistant Assessment (MITAA) at the end of the course and be given a final MITAA score.
