Graduate Student Teaching Assistants (TAs) must complete a mandatory one-hour training session to work as a TA. This includes SPHTM students who serve as TA’s for undergraduate courses as well. The objective of the workshop is to provide a toolkit for our TAs where ethics, academic standards, best practices, honor code, payroll, etc. are discussed. This workshop is a coordinated effort between the Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of Student Affairs and it is envisioned to be a partnership with the School’s Faculty in enhancing the teaching and learning experience at the SPHTM.
Our upcoming workshops will be held on:
· Wednesday, December 6th – Room 1210 – Noon – 1pm
· Friday, January 12th – Room 1206 – Noon – 1pm
· Thursday, January 18th – Room 1206 – Noon – 1pm
Please note that the Office of Student Affairs now maintains a list of trained and approved Teaching Assistants. This list also includes information on the courses and topics that the trained TAs are interested in supporting. This list can be referenced by the individual departments and faculty members looking for TAs. Please contact Rozanne Bailey (firstname.lastname@example.org) to access the list.
Also note that if you have already attended a training session over the past two years, you do NOT have to attend another one.
If you have any questions, please contact Thomas J. Stranova, ScD, MHA.
