Wednesday, September 9, 2015 — 8:30 AM to Thursday, September 10, 2015 — 3:30 PM EDT

ExpecTAtions is a two-day workshop that prepares Waterloo Engineering students to undertake a teaching assistantship. To serve as a TA, you are required to complete the ExpecTAtions workshop. After full attendance and successful completion of all required activities you will receive a certificate noting your achievement.

Over the two days, you will work in small, discipline-specific groups. Each group is assigned two mentors: one faculty member and one student with experience as a TA. These faculty and student mentors work closely with you to help prepare you for the TA role by sharing their valuable experiences and unique perspectives. Through a combination of small-group and online activities, you learn about the roles and responsibilities of TAs, practise giving lessons and marking student work, and examine the working relationships between TAs, professors and students. An overview of the two-day schedule is outlined below:
