Fall TA Training
This document contains information about fall semester training sessions for teaching assistants in the College of Letters & Science.
Fall 2019 Annual College of Letters & Science Teaching Assistant Training
Thursday, August 29th, 2019
9:00am to 4:30pm in George L. Mosse Humanities Building
This year's Teaching Assistant Training is featuring two helpful and informative sessions designed to empower and educate TAs. The morning session, geared towards new TAs, will focus on getting new graduate students comfortable with their role as a TA. We will review important university policies and help new TAs think through key topics such as pedagogy, academic integrity, Title IX, campus resources and more.
The afternoon session is for all TAs experienced and inexperienced. There will be six themed tracks, and each will be led by an experienced team of teaching fellows who will go in depth on important topics such as diversity and inclusion, health and wellness, and classroom management, among others. This is a great chance for TAs to mingle with peers and colleagues, both new and experienced, to discuss some of the most critical issues for TAs at UW-Madison.
This year's teaching fellows come from all across the College of Letters and Science: Alleta Maier (Physics), Amanda Spiewak (Chemistry), Chelsea Nestel (Geography), Holly Cho (Life Sciences Communication, nominated by Integrated Biology), Jennifer Estes (Anthropology), Lisa Johnson (English), Lucian Rothe (German, Nordic, and Slavic), Marissa Fernholz (Communication Arts), Mark Radomski (Spanish and Portuguese), Melody Sain (Botany), Miriam Barcus (Sociology), Mitchell Campbell (Psychology), Robert (Bobby) Laudone (Math), Sheamus Johnson (Anthropology), Suzanna Schulert (History, nominated by Gender and Women’s Studies).
