Undergraduate TA Orientation

10:00am

Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning

Stephen Robert ’62 Campus Center, Kasper Multipurpose

Not sure what to do on the first day of teaching? Are you interested in learning more about how to approach and work with students? Through interactive activities, this orientation will cover professionalism, creating inclusive learning environments, effective teaching strategies, and best practices for continual improvement as a UTA. All students are encouraged to attend the UTA Microteaching Session in the afternoon to practice what they have learned. Breakfast will be served from 9:30-10:00 and registration is required.

It is necessary for UTAs to discuss attendance to the orientation with instructors to inform them that departments will need to compensate their UTAs for two hours of training, at the hourly rate.
