The Teaching and Research Assistant Institute provides professional development opportunities for all graduate assistants and is required for all new teaching and research assistants on the Moscow campus. Those students not located on the Moscow campus will be required to complete a Blackboard course. Topics include UI academic policies and procedures, available resources, teaching methods and the responsibilities of conducting responsible research, which are highly beneficial to new TAs and RAs alike.
Dates for the Fall 2014 TA/RA Training Institute will be:
Wednesday | August 20th | 8:00am to 12:30pm (only required for new international TAs)
Thursday | August 21st | 8:00am to 12:30pm
**Friday | August 22nd | 10:00am to 12:30pm
(note the different start time)
All sessions will be held in Renfrew Hall Room 111
Registration for this event is not required.
All new international TAs
are also required to register for INTR 508-01 and MUST
attend the session on August 20th. We encourage all TA's to read the Teaching Assistant Handbook (see link below) as it contains important information on teaching policies and tips as well as an abundance of campus resources available.
