International Student Teaching Assistant Orientation

All incoming international teaching assistants (TAs) are required to attend a special one-week International Teaching Assistant Program (ITAP) prior to the start of the fall term. The teacher training program provides workshops designed to introduce and review the skills needed to successfully interact with U.S. undergraduate students. The topics covered include U.S. university culture, teacher/student roles, presentation skills, classroom management and culture shock. The program includes evaluations of each TA's English language presentation skills.
