Departmental & Other TA Trainings

Many departments also offer trainings specific to the needs of their TAs. TAs should watch for communication from their department.
L&S staff is happy to consult with departments as they are planning such trainings. Please contact Lynne Prost.

Departments should also be sure their TAs attend a Graduate Assistants Equity Workshop. TAs MUST complete this workshop in order to be appointed for more than one semester.

There are other TA trainings across campus that may be of interest to L&S TAs, including:

L&S TA Training is Run by the L&S TA Training & Support Team

We seek to empower all L&S Teaching Assistants (TAs) to flourish by providing continuous training and support. 

We help our TAs acquire knowledge, skills, and confidence to cultivate engaged, equitable environments where all students (and teachers!) can thrive as they navigate the challenges and joys of learning.

We value TAs as whole persons and are dedicated to developing excellent, effective, and empathetic teachers strengthened by sustainable teaching practices.
