What exactly is CS 375?
You should think of this class as a seminar, where you are in the same room as your other fellow first-time TAs and have the opportunity to share your experiences and offer advice for interesting situations that arise.
Ultimately, just as most learning is done in your classes by doing the homeworks/projects, most of your learning will come from actually teaching your sections/labs. What this class offers is a chance for you to debrief and regroup.
There is exactly one goal in this class, and that is to get you to think very carefully about your teaching, to consider different scenarios that might arise (and how to deal with them), and to get you to genuinely enjoy teaching! (Okay, that was actually three goals, but they're basically the same thing in my mind.)
