Teaching Assistant Training Program - August 2014
The D.B. Weldon Library, Room 121, Teaching Support Centre

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. Topics include: fair grading practices, diversity in the classroom, lecturing, using audio-visual aids and giving students feedback on written work. 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 will 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.
