NOTE: Currently, this program is open only to graduate students who have been sponsored to take part by the Teaching Enhancement for TAs program coordinator in their home department, in support of a formal mentoring component of the department's TA training.
This full-day workshop is meant for senior TAs who will be serving, formally or informally, as mentors for other TAs in their department. During the workshop, you will focus on developing specific mentoring skills. The early part of the day will focus on setting up the mentoring relationship, and the latter part of the day will focus on 3 core mentoring skills - feedback, reflection, and skill modeling. The workshop is an interactive, peer-based model which will give the mentors opportunities to learn about and practice these skills, and will run from 9:00AM until 4:30 PM. The training is highly intensive, and to take part, participants will need to commit to being present for the entire duration of the workshop.
