2019 TA Orientation

Every fall during the week before the start of classes, the Kaneb Center offers a two-day orientation to all graduate students who are serving as a TA or preparing to teach their own course.

TAs who attend this event will be well prepared for their first interactions with students, dealing with common teaching dilemmas, leading class sessions, and grading student work.  This event is highly recommended for all new graduate TAs and is also open to returning TAs, postdocs, and other interested graduate students. 

By participating in the TA Orientation, TAs will:

  • be prepared for a successful start to their semester.
  • be introduced to strategies for successful TAing.
  • connect with other TAs and those who can assist them with their teaching.
