Over 200 essays written by recipients of the Teaching Effectiveness Award (TEA), a very competitive award given each year by the Graduate Council’s Faculty Advisory Committee for GSI Affairs. Each essay identifies a problem the GSI encountered in teaching, explains the GSI’s strategy and rationale in devising a solution, and assesses the effectiveness of the solution.
