International TA Orientation

This program is designed for all incoming international student TAs. Orientation consists of a five (1/2-day) orientation for new international teaching assistants (called ITA Orientation) and three (½ -day) workshops, called TA Seminar on College Teaching (see below). With some exceptions, new international TAs will attend both the ITA Orientation and the TA Seminar on College Teaching.

The program covers issues associated with:

  1. Getting settled at MSU
  2. English Language screening
  3. Introduction to MSU’s students and academic environment
  4. Pedagogical training and practice
