Fall 2018 Annual College of Letters & Science Teaching Assistant Training
Thursday, August 30th, 2018 - 9:30 to 4:00 (Registration begins at 9:00)
3650 Mosse Humanities Building
At this full-day training event, selected Teaching Fellows from across the disciplines will cover a host of topics that TAs will find useful as they begin their fall teaching appointments. Various campus and college units will also be on hand to discuss strategies and resources to help TAs navigate the first day of class, work within a teaching team, interact with a diverse group of students, understand campus policies as they relate to their TA appointments, and integrate technology into the classroom.
The training is geared towards new TAs in the College of Letters & Science, but experienced TAs are welcome to attend, as are TAs from other UW-Madison schools and colleges. Pre-registration is not required.
For more information on the Fall TA Training, please contact Brian Bubenzer, email@example.com, 265-0603, or Tori Thompson Peters, firstname.lastname@example.org, 890-3850.
