The Teaching and Research Assistant Institute provides professional development opportunities for all graduate assistants and is required for all new assistants (on the Moscow Campus only). Topics include UI academic policies and procedures, available resources, teaching methods and the responsibilities of conducting responsible research, which are highly beneficial to new and experienced TAs and RA's alike.
The Fall 2014 TA/RA Institute will be Thursday, August 21st (from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) and Friday, August 22nd (from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) in Renfrew 111 and then continue through the semester via Blackboard. (Students are encouraged to attend Convocation with Guest Speaker Sean Astin
at 8:30 a.m. on Friday prior to the Institute session.) All new international TA’s
are also required to register for INTR 508-01 and MUST
attend a session on August 20th (also in Renfrew 111). 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.
