Tuesday, August 20, 2013 - 8:30am - 4:00pm
Trabant University Center and Gore Hall
This conference is designed primarily for those graduate students who have been newly appointed as TAs for the 2013-14 academic year. All first time TAs are required to attend. The conference helps orient TAs to their instructional roles and responsibilities at Delaware and introduces them to effective practices and central aspects of learning and teaching. Since the conference accommodates TAs across disciplines and with varied teaching responsibilities, we strongly recommend that department faculty highlight those sessions for the TAs that are most relevant to their instructional roles in the department.
This conference will be the first in a series of events for TAs, followed by practice-based sessions during the fall semester and concluding with a day-long conference held on Thursday, January 23, 2014.
