International Teaching Assistant Orientation

From Tuesday, August 13, 2013 through Friday, August 16, 2013 a required orientation will be held for new International Teaching Assistants (ITAs) at Michigan State University. Over this four day period, we partner with other units on campus to help ITAs satisfy registration requirements (e.g., SPEAK test) and introduce them to a variety of resources on campus available to them as they not only making their transition to their teaching roles, but to their broader roles as graduate students on our campus. Participants will also participate in plenary sessions and small group discussions on the topics of communication, undergraduate student culture, and pedagogical strategies.
