TA Development Program

All new TAs in the College of Engineering must complete the TA Development Program as a condition for receiving certification (and stipend). In addition, TAs may also receive credit for their successful participation in the one-credit Teaching Seminar, ENGRG 6780. This seminar will be offered next in Fall 2020 by Engineering Learning Initiatives. It is an enhancement to the TA Development Program and is taught by the Associate Director of Engineering Learning Initiatives. It aims to upgrade teachers’ skills, increase teaching standards, and improves student-learning outcomes through formative discussion and reflective writing.

Within the college, 200 to 250 TAs are certified each year. The engineering training programs are conducted twice a year, once each in the fall and spring semesters.
