Orientation

New Teaching Assistants (TAs) are required by Graduate Division to attend a one-day New TA Orientation prior to beginning their TA assignment. TADP offers these orientations twice prior to the beginning of every Fall quarter, and twice prior to the start of every Winter quarter. The sessions covers specific classroom techniques and issues, such as preparation, presentation skills, problem solving, teaching with technology, and rapport and diversity, as well as rights, regulations, and campus resources.

You must complete the New TA Orientation before or during your first academic-year quarter as a TA, or you will not be eligible to TA in subsequent quarters. If the orientation you need is full, we encourage you to attend the TA orientation as a walk-in. Seats often open up due to no-shows and, if so, we will do our best to place you in an orientation.

Please note that these days are after the quarter starts, but before instruction begins.
