The Department of English teaching portal presents all the information you need to work as a teaching assistant or independent graduate instructor in the English department. To navigate its various sections, use the main menu at left. All links, whether in bodies or headings, are in orange.

This portal presents material that is specific to the needs of the department and its instructors, but it also makes extensive use of material from the University of Waterloo's Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE), which has a range of resources to support instructors at the University. The CTE has produced a university-wide TA manual, Teaching at the University of Waterloo: A Manual for Teaching Assistants (PDF), which contains general information that you might also find useful.

If you have any questions or comments related to the portal, contact Bruce Dadey, TA Coordinator for the Department of English Language and Literature.
