Teaching Assistant Resources

  1. TA Training
    To ensure a successful TA experience right from the start, all new TAs must attend a training program. In addition to online modules for new TAs (see below), we offer a one-day training program at the beginning of each semester. More information, or see a video of a previous morning session from the training day. Next training scheduled for Wednesday, August 17, 2016.
