Teaching Resources

An integral part of your graduate education is the development of effective communication and teaching skills. This section will provide you with valuable information upon receiving a Teaching Assistant (TA) appointment.

The university requires that all teaching assistants receive training prior to or during the first quarter in which they teach. The Center for Teaching Development (CTD) and the department work collaboratively to ensure that all TAs are appropriately trained. Training includes workshops before classes begin, individual mentoring and feedback, and ongoing seminars on teaching.

For information on CTD sponsored trainings please contact:

The Bioengineering Department also sponsors quarterly training sessions for Bioengineering TAs. All TAs should plan on attending. For information please contact:
