Graduate TA Orientation

Teaching at the university level can be a challenging undertaking, especially in a diverse learning environment. To help newly-appointed graduate teaching assistants prepare for their teaching experience in our undergraduate classrooms and laboratories, the Graduate College sponsors a mandatory Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) Orientation.  This workshop is held prior to the start of the fall and spring semesters. 

Fall 2015: The Fall 2015 GTA Orientation will be held Friday, August 14, from 8:30 a.m.—3:30 p.m. in the BU 120, College of Business Auditorium.

This event, mandatory for all newly-appointed GTAs, prepares graduate students with essential information on teaching in higher education, including teaching strategies, student conduct, and legal matters.  In addition to new GTA’s, we encourage registration of current GTA’s needing a refresher and students who did not attend our past Spring 2015 GTA workshop.

Staff/faculty: Registration for newly-appointed GTAs for the fall 2015 term will open later this summer. Please contact Veronica Padron-Schonhoff, vpadronschonhoff@fau.edu, with any questions.
