First-Time TAs – We Want You!!

Wed, Aug 14, 2013

The Graduate School, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Center for Teaching and Learning are now accepting applications for “Teaching Assistant Fundamentals,” a free, semester-length professional development seminar to support first-time Teaching Assistants. 

Participants will:

  • Learn about effective teaching practices (especially leading discussions)
  • Receive feedback and personalized advice on your teaching from a trained teaching mentor
  • Receive summarized feedback from your undergraduate students at mid-semester
  • Connect with other TAs in the College of Liberal Arts who are committed to excellent teaching

 Any graduate student who is pursuing a degree in the College of Liberal Arts, is a first-time TA at UT-Austin, AND is teaching a discussion session in fall 2013 is eligible. Upon successful completion, participating students will also receive a certificate of completion for your professional records and a $250 stipend.
