Upcoming: Equity & Inclusion Sept workshops (register now); LFS TA Orientation Sept 6th


Hello LFS TAs!

We hope everyone had a restful summer and enjoyed some down time away from their studies. The Equity and Inclusion office here at UBC is hosting some workshops in September to discuss how to make UBC classroom spaces more inclusive for all students. If this appeals to you, please register for the workshops happening on September 1, 8, 15 or 21 here: https://equity.ubc.ca/how-we-can-help/training-and-education/teaching-assistant-workshops-equity-diversity-and-inclusion/

For those who are new TAs or would like a refresher on the LFS TA Training program supports and resources, we will be hosting our annual orientation to the LFS TA Training Program on Wednesday September 6th. More details will be available shortly – we look forward to meeting everyone on the 6th!
