This program, which takes place over three half-day workshops just prior to the start of fall semester, is designed for all incoming TAs. It is required for all incoming TAs whose departments do not offer specialized orientations, and recommended for all those TAs who have additional training in their own department. During the TA Seminar on College Teaching, TAP will provide a light breakfast and refreshments for participants.
Day 1: active learning techniques and student engagement strategies
