TAs have been facing unique challenges providing support for large, synchronous, online classes. In this session, we will brainstorm challenges and solutions to typical roles that TAs may face in current online instruction scenarios, including but not limited to leading tutorials, group discussions, and managing student questions. We will additionally address the support that both instructors and TAs need from each other.
