At Rice University, teaching assistants (TAs) play an important role in the success of many of the university’s courses. Serving as a teaching assistant provides many benefits to the students and faculty as well as the graduate student taking on this role. Directly assisting and working with undergraduates and one’s peers brings with it many rewards in addition to many responsibilities. The CTE’s Teaching Assistant training takes place in the first few weeks of every semester and is designed to provide students who are currently TAs or plan to be TAs in the future with the tools to be successful teaching assistants. Topics covered in the training include:
- Institutional Policies (ADA, FERPA, etc.)
- Grading and Rubrics
- Mentoring, Office Hours, and Other Kinds of One-on-One Teaching
- Teaching Tips
We have currently reached capacity for this event and registration is now closed. We look forward to working with you!
