Alignment is a powerful concept in the scholarship of teaching and learning, but what does it mean in practice for graduate students serving as TAs and going on the job market?

This seminar defines the concept of alignment and presents related strategies that graduate students can use to make their teaching more effective and efficient at the course, program, and institutional level.
