This orientation, conducted over two mornings, will prepare you to be an excellent teaching assistant at Temple University. At the general sessions, you will learn about the Temple student community and what resources are available to support them. You will also learn how to manage challenging situations in the classroom. Topical breakout sessions will focus on various aspects of teaching, such as motivating and engaging students, facilitating discussions, being thoughtful about inclusion and accessibility in your classroom, grading, and teaching effectively online.
Participation in both morning sessions on August 18 and 19 is mandatory for new Temple Teaching Assistants (0-1 semesters). Returning TAs are encouraged to attend. Don't miss this opportunity to build community, and share resources and good teaching practices with other Temple TAs across the disciplines.
