Workshop description

As teaching assistants, we aim to establish positive relationships with our undergraduate students, but we rarely get the chance to hear honestly from our students about how to best do so. This panel and workshop features current undergraduate students who provide their perspectives on how to build rapport between students and TAs. Together, we'll discuss techniques and brainstorm simple but effective strategies to help you establish positive working relationships with your undergraduates.


  • CTE has a new registration system called GoSignMeUp. Before you can register for a workshop, you need to create an account (one time only). Once you’ve created an account, you can register for this workshop.
  • Participants will receive an attendance credit toward the Fundamentals program if they arrive on time and stay until the end of the event.


Many of our workshops have waiting lists, so if you've registered but can't attend, please cancel your registration well in advance through the registration system, so that someone else can fill your spot.
