For First-Time TA’s on the Homewood Campus
Tue. Aug 28, 2018 8:30am
The Center for Educational Resources hosts the annual Teaching Assistant Orientation for the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering on Tuesday, August 28, 2018. All new, first-time graduate and undergraduate teaching assistants should attend this event, which will be held in Hodson Hall from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. A plenary session will introduce the university's teaching policies and support offices. This will be followed by a series of breakout sessions that students may select and attend based on the relevancy to their own upcoming TA assignments. We ask that faculty inform their TAs about this event as soon as possible. For more information, please visit the Teaching Assistant Orientation page.
