TA Orientation for New Teaching Assistants
Tuesday, August 25, 2020 · 2 PM - 3:30 PM
This event is highly encouraged for all NEW Graduate Teaching Assistants. We encourage the additional participation of any graduate student who may be teaching in the future or as a refresher for returning TAs.
This year, we are condensing need-to-know information for new TAs into a brief orientation on August 25th, 2-3:30pm. It will include an introduction to key resources on campus that you may need throughout your semester, from back-end technical support to counseling services for students you think may need assistance. We will record the session for those unable to attend; a link to the recording will be available upon request. We look forward to meeting you and being part of your welcome back to UMBC!
