The Teaching Assistant Training Program is a hands-on, 20 hour session (over 2.5 days) taught by current Teaching Assistants (TAs) to new TAs just embarking on their teaching careers. Come to one of our sessions and learn about fair grading practices, diversity in the classroom, lecturing, using audio-visual aids and giving students feedback on written work, among other topics. Choose from concurrent sessions designed to meet your specific discipline-related teaching needs such as vocal health for lecturers or using small group discussion methods in the classroom. Get some real-time, hands-on teaching experience in our unique micro teaching sessions, where you can try out your teaching skills and techniques with a small group of your peers and receive helpful, constructive feedback! At the end of the session, you'll receive a certificate as evidence of your commitment to the development of your knowledge and skill as a teacher.
A $20 deposit is required to complete your registration in this course. The deposit can be submitted in person at the Teaching Support Centre, Room 122, The D.B. Weldon Library.
