Workshops for Teaching Assistants

The Graduate School and the Teaching Center offer an orientation and a series of workshops for teaching assistants to improve their instructional skills. The orientation and “getting started” workshop are mandatory for all graduate students starting teaching assignments. Some topics included in the workshop series are presentation skills, course and lecture planning, techniques for improving student attention and motivation, group dynamics, testing and grading, use of technology to enhance learning, and how to elicit and interpret feedback. TAs who complete a significant percentage of the workshops are awarded certificates.
