Teaching Assistant Institute Goes Virtual

Mar 10,21


"Virtual TAI was really rewarding this year. TAI brings TA’s together and forms a community where we can ask our questions and improve our teaching skills. It's a little extra boost of confidence before many TAs teach (and/or perform other roles) for the very first time. I was really inspired by the new TAs that I met in each session. It's clear that they know their subjects well and care about their interactions with their students." said Amy King, a Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) Graduate Teaching Consultant (GTC), Teaching Assistant Institute (TAI) facilitator, and graduate student in the Department of Hispanic Studies.

This is just one of the many comments about the 2020-2021 Teaching Assistant Institute. Like many educators contemplating Fall 2020 instruction amid continued COVID-19 distancing policies, Dr. Ra’sheedah Richardson, CTE’s Assistant Director and TAI Administrator, reviewed options to deliver a quality training program to new teaching assistants. In collaboration with the leadership at the Graduate and Professional School (GPS) and the CTE, it was decided that TAI will be transitioned into a 100-percent virtual training program for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. Routinely delivered in a one day, 8-hour face-to-face program, TAI evolved into asynchronous modules combined with a synchronous 2-hour GTC-facilitated activity-based session.
