The CTLT Teaching Assistant (TA) Institute is a week of free professional development workshops open to any graduate and undergraduate TA. From January 11-15, 2021, the TA Institute will include a collection of workshops designed to support TAs as their roles change with the move to online teaching and learning.

Sessions include, but aren’t limited to: Online Presentation and Lecturing Skills, Designing Impactful Activities for Online Learning, Time Management Skills for Graduate Students and TAs, and Holding Space for Anti-Racism and Solidarity in Teaching Practice.

This year, workshops are organized into 6 themes, and if attendees complete 4 workshops within a theme, and complete the related pre & post-session online modules, they will be eligible for a letter of completion that can be included in a Teaching Portfolio or CV.
