Teaching Assistant Workshop

Chemistry Department Teaching Assistant Workshop

The Department of Chemistry holds a Teaching Assistant Workshop for all graduate student teaching assistants at the beginning of the Fall and Winter terms. Attendance at a Teaching Assistant Workshop is mandatory for new graduate students in the Department of Chemistry. You will only need to attend the Teaching Assistant Workshop one time and you will receive a certificate of attendance that you will need to keep as proof of attendance for future assignments.

Some of the benefits of attending this workshop are:

  • Enhance your teaching strategies to be a successful teaching assistant
  • Develop your interpersonal, leadership, and coordination skills
  • Help make your experience as a teaching assistant more enjoyable and rewarding

Workshops are held the week before classes begin in the Fall term and the first week of classes in the Winter term. There is no workshop in the Spring term, so you must have already attended the workshop in order to TA in the Spring term. 

The next Teaching Assistant Workshop will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2017, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (registration at 9:45 a.m.), room C2-361 (Reading Room).

Please note that attendance at the Teaching Assistant Workshop is restricted to those who have been chosen for a TA assignment.
