TA/RA Resources

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 included, 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.

Continuing teaching and research assistants, who have attended the TA/RA Institute or have taken the BBLearn online course are not required to attend this event, but are highly encouraged. This event is a great way to refresh your knowledge.

If you have a qualifying excuse for not attending, please contact Sam Koester, skoester@uidaho.edu, in Morrill Hall 104. This training is required to hold an assistantship, failure to participate will result in loss of your assistantship.
