Upcoming Event: TA Orientation
1:30-5 pm, Tuesday, December 10th, 2013 Room H-767
January – the new year – will soon be upon us: new classes, new professors, new books, and new things to learn. For a number of graduate (and a few undergraduate) students across the university this also means taking on a new role: that of teaching assistant. From keeping up with readings, to grading essays, supervising labs, facilitating discussions, organizing slides, responding to student questions, and dealing with professors – not to mention their own graduate school work – TAs have a lot on their plate!
To start the year right, the Centre for Teaching and Learning Services invites TAs from all Faculties, both new and returning, to attend an Orientation event on Tuesday, December 10th.
This event will be an opportunity for TAs from across the university to:
· be introduced to the resources and support available to them;
· learn about Epigeum, new online learning modules designed to help with much-needed TA-ing skills;
· hear from past TAs about their experience dealing with professors and students;
· and create a space for current TAs to meet each other, and share their questions, concerns, and reflections about their new role.
This is a free event. Refreshments will be served.
Places are limited. Please register with http://graduatestudies.concordia.ca/gradproskills/.
