Training for New TAs

in this section

Spring TA training will be held on Monday and Tuesday, January 23 and 24.

Additional Training Requirements

Microteaching: January 25-February 15, 2017

All new TAs are required to participate in one two-hour microteaching session. In a microteaching session you teach a micro-lesson to a micro-class, and then view a videotape of your teaching. These sessions provide an opportunity for small-group discussion about teaching in general and about individual concerns and experiences in particular. Microteaching offers a valuable opportunity to see and reflect on your own teaching, to get feedback from your peers, to learn the teaching styles of others, and to practice teaching in a safe environment.

Midterm Feedback: Mid-Semester

The midterm feedback process provides TAs with direct student input regarding teaching skills, methods, and approaches. Proper use of the results can help TAs implement changes and improve teaching, and thus lead to a more productive and enjoyable experience for everyone. Midterm evaluations for the spring semester will be administered mid-semester. TAs will receive additional information by e-mail in advance.
