GPTK725 - So You Want to be a TA? An Information Session

For many of us, being a graduate students means being a TA (Teaching Assistant): an incredible opportunity to learn the job of teaching as well as supporting students in their learning. Sharing our knowledge of a subject also allows us to deepen our understanding of a discipline and of the academic process. In this info session, we will discuss what the content, requirements, and conditions of a TA's job. We will also explore some of the issues graduate students should consider before becoming a TA. Finally, we will investigate possible ways of applying to a TA-ship (there is no centralized process), and identify steps to get there.
