Event Description

This event is for Faculty. If you are a TA please sign up for Working Effectively with Faculty Members (For Teaching Assistants – TAs).

This event is part of the CTLT Summer Institute, taking place from August 22–26, 2022.

Teaching Assistants (TA) play a significant role in students’ learning. They are often expected to teach in face-to-face classrooms, facilitate discussions, conduct tutorials and labs in-person and/or online, grade electronically submitted papers, and perform many other duties to assist instructors and inspire students. As instructors, we need to provide support and guidance so that TAs can perform their best.

In this session, we will explore what instructors and students expect from their TAs, key elements of the TA contract, and how we can enhance the teaching and learning experiences of our TAs.

Facilitator: Judy Chan, Faculty Associate/ Faculty Liaison, Land and Food Systems, CTLT
