Working Effectively with Faculty Members (For Teaching Assistants – TAs)
August 25 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
This event is part of the CTLT Summer Institute, taking place from August 22–25, 2022: https://institute.ctlt.ubc.ca/summer-institute/summer-institute-events/
As a Teaching Assistant, you will be working closely in different roles with an experienced instructor to teach. When this relationship goes well, it can be rewarding, educational and fun. When it does not go well, it can be frustrating and overwhelming.
In this session, we will explore the various needs and expectations (including the TA contract) that structure the TA-Instructor relationship, develop effective communication strategies, including feedback and building professional interpersonal skills, all with the aim of helping you build a harmonious and rewarding professional relationship with the instructors you work with.
Facilitator: Shaya Golparian, Educational Developer: TA Development Programs, CTLT
