Graduate Teaching Assistant 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.

Fall 2016: The Fall 2016 GTA Orientation will be held Friday, August 19th, from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., in GN 101 and GS 101, 102, and 103 for breakout sessions, on the Boca Raton campus. Click here for the Boca Raton campus map.

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. Current GTAs are also welcome to attend. Pre-registration is required. Registration deadline: Wednesday, August 10, 2016.
