August 4, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Survive and Thrive! As a graduate student, being assigned a Teaching Assistant role for the first time–or with an expanded set of TA responsibilities–can feel daunting.

Sessions and workshops during this institute are designed to increase TAs’ confidence around interacting with students, anticipating challenges and planning potential solutions, and effectively supporting students in their TA roles.
- Building rapport with students and cultivating student engagement
- Ask Me Anything (AMA) breakout discussions with experienced TAs
- Knowing Your Students: Supporting Student Diversity and Success
