Do you have trouble balancing your graduate studies and TA responsibilities? Are you unsure of how to set boundaries for your online presence as a TA? Are you a procrastinator? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, then this workshop is for you. We will discuss methods and resources to help you set goals for yourself and organize, schedule, and prioritize your TA tasks and commitments. We will also develop strategies to navigate the often competing expectations that your course instructor, your graduate advisor, your students, your friends and family, and you have of yourself and your time. Participants in this workshop should be prepared to engage in discussion and participate in other learning activities. Please have a writing utensil and some paper handy.
