Workshop Name Introduction to demonstrating at the University of Otago
About Workshop What should you do when a student is always asking very demanding questions of you, and you feel they might be trying to test the limits of how much you know? This introductory workshop has been designed to provide support for anyone who is about to take up a position as a demonstrator within the University. The focus for the workshop is on how we can develop effective communication with students and why this is important. In addition, the workshop will introduce participants to the roles and responsibilities of demonstrators and include some basic teaching skills, and some possible solutions to common demonstrating problems.

The session will complement Departmental and College induction/training sessions for demonstrators. If you are a demonstrator coordinator in a Department, and would like to organise a workshop, please contact Rob Wass (

The aims of this workshop are
a) to provide an opportunity for you to think about your role as a demonstrator
b) to provide you with practical ways to develop your communication skills
b) to provide the foundations upon which you can extend and enhance your teaching knowledge, understandings and skills.

Please note that our seminar room is upstairs. If this will create accessibility issues for you, let Candi Young know. (
