The User-Friendly Classroom

The User-friendly Classroom video training series was created by A.C. Kemp, a lecturer in MIT Global Studies and Languages (GSL), specifically for teaching assistants for whom English is a second language and the USA a second culture. These videos focus on developing international teaching assistants' strategies for successful, student-centered communication in the interactive American classroom. These videos demonstrate best practices through authentic examples of successful teaching scenarios, interviews with undergraduates and advice from international teaching assistants.
