Resources for Teaching Assistants
Teaching Assistant Manual
The TA Training Institute has developed a manual for TAs called “Making the Difference.” The manual lists general teaching resources available at Hopkins – e.g., TA-specific services offered by the library, services offered to students with disabilities, faculty responsibilities in working with such students, etc. Printed copies of the TA Manual are distributed at the TA Orientation events and are available from the CER throughout the year.
Teaching Assistant Training Videos
A collection of helpful videos for TAs. It includes recorded sessions from a previous TA Orientation as well as student/TA scenarios to help TAs identify challenging interactions and how to handle them.
CER has worked with the GRO to ensure its members are informed of all changes to the TA Training program. CER has met with the GRO board to discuss items to go into a TA Training section of the Graduate Student Portal. The GRO website links to the CER website, which in turn, links to TA Training. The GRO also distributes TA training-related information through its list-serv.
