All first-time Teaching Assistants are required to attend and successfully complete a 3-day Teaching Assistant Seminar prior to the start of the Fall or Spring Semester. Attendance and successful completion of the Seminar (including a written component) are mandatory and a condition of appointment. Unexcused absences from any portion of the seminar or failure to attend are cause for revocation of the Teaching Assistant award.
Note that the Spring 2021 seminar will take place January 5-7. Day one will be entirely online, day two will be via synchronous Zoom, and day 3 will be in person on campus.
All seminar participants must have the approval of their respective academic units. Students who are interested in attending the seminar should make a request to their academic unit to participate.
