Sponsored jointly by the UGA Graduate School and the Center for Teaching and Learning, 3FP is a yearlong professional development program that brings together 15 innovative and dedicated teaching assistants from across campus to talk about, reflect upon, and improve their teaching, while preparing them for the academic job market and the rigors of their first faculty positions.

His talk was co-funded by Linguistics and AI.
