Welcome to the Teaching Assistant (TA) Orientation
Date: Tuesday, August 22, 2023
Time: 9:00 AM - 2:45 PM
Location: Mazur Hall, Room 17
This orientation, hosted in person for the first time since 2019, 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 the TA Orientation is required 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.
