Registration is now open for 2016-2017 TA Orientation.
All teaching assistants at UCR must complete orientation prior to teaching for the first time. Even if you have completed TA training at another institution, you must complete orientation at UCR or you will be deemed ineligible to TA per Grad Division requirements. Orientation only occurs once a year prior to the beginning of fall quarter. Orientation will take place Sept. 19-21, 2016. You only need to attend ONE day of the orientation. New graduate students are NOT allowed to attend orientation on Sept. 19, 2016 and must sign up for the Sept. 20 or Sept. 21. You can register for orientation under the TA Training tab.
The Teaching Assistant Development Program trains all TAs at UCR, organizing a major orientation and offering workshops throughout the year. TAs are offered one-to-one mentorship as well as the opportunity to observe the successes of their peers whose teaching has been recognized as outstanding. Through TADP, TAs learn to build rapport with their students, increase their knowledge and organizational skills, and become responsive to the needs of UCR’s diverse student population.
