About TA Orientation
The TA Orientation workshop was previously offered as a cross-disciplinary event for current and prospective teaching assistants. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted to offer TA Orientation as an online learning module. This method of delivery allows for flexible, self-directed learning and the opportunity to revisit the content at any time.
By the end of the module, participants will be able to:
- Engage in reflective practices to make meaning of teaching and learning
- Describe how keeping learning central leads to effective teaching
- Identify effective teaching and communication strategies for your TA role
- Consider ways to practice professionalism in your responsibilities and relationships as a TA
