2022/23 Winter TA Opportunity
I am looking for a TA for 2022 W2 FNH 490 002 Food Safety and Quality Management for the winter term of 2023 (January to April). This is a problem-based learning course that examines the techniques, including continuous improvement methods, needed to implement a food safety and quality system in a food manufacturing facility. Sanitation is an area of focus because of its link to significant food borne outbreaks.

Hello LFS TAs,
If you are an undergraduate TA the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) is interested in your participation and feedback on an ‘undergraduate only’ Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW). Typically the ISW is targeted towards graduate TAs. This is an excellent opportunity to participant in an ISW and help shape how CTLT structures future ISWs!
There is an online ISW for this purpose next month with sessions on May 24, 28, 29 and June 4. If these dates do not work for you but you are still interested in this opportunity please reach out to myself or Amelie and we will keep you in the loop on future undergraduate only ISW as they transition back to in-person.
