New TA Workshop
On Friday, Aug. 11, The Graduate School and campus partners hosted our 2023 New TA Workshop in-person at the McKimmon from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The workshop covered teaching-related topics and was especially designed for new TAs, although all graduate students and postdocs with an interest in teaching were welcome to join us.
In addition to providing a basic overview of best practices in teaching and related topics, the workshop was intended to connect participants to resources that they can draw on in the future. It also counts toward the Teaching Certificate. In addition to a morning session that covered important topics for all teaching assistants, breakout sessions and a panel of graduate students who will share their insights as teaching assistants was also provided.
All new TAs were required to register for the New TA workshop. Current and returning TAs were welcome to attend.
