How to make up 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. If you missed it but are planning on being a teaching assistant in the winter or spring quarter, you can make it up.

Contact tadp@ucr.edu, and we will give you all the necessary information.

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.
