Wi13 TA Orientation

Center for Teaching Development 2013-03-16

TA Orientation Thursday, January 17, 2013 (1:30 – 2:00 pm: Check-in, refreshments) 2:00 – 4:00 pm: Workshop Center Hall, Room 316 (map)

If you haven’t yet attended at TA Orientation at the Center for Teaching Development and you have a new TA assignment, you should attend this orientation. This 2-hr session will cover the highlights of being a TA at UCSD, from an introduction to how people learn to the roles and responsibilities of TAs to best practices for getting students engaged in science and humanities discussion sections.

This workshop is lead by Spencer Bagley and Sarah Esper. Both are experienced UCSD graduate students, familiar with modern theories of teaching and learning and able to give lots of practical advice “from the trenches.”

Please fill out this form to register for the event. This will tell us how many people to expect (so we have enough goodies) and will help us make the content relevant to the participants.
