Mentoring Teaching Assistants

Mentoring Teaching Assistants

The CTL collaborates with departments and individual faculty members to help prepare and coach their teaching assistants as they begin teaching.

The CTL typically meets faculty-TA teams on a course-by-course basis. We discuss the needs of the course as defined by the professor and the agreed-upon role of the teaching assistant for the course. CTL faculty members then meet regularly throughout the course with individual teaching assistants to provide guidance and feedback on their teaching activities.
