This session will address some of the changes to the role of TAs in moving to an online instructional format. We will focus on TA/instructor and TA/student relationships to better identify personal expectations of how these roles operate when learning goes online.  This will also be an opportunity to enhance your toolkit with strategies for engaging students and building community online.
