Students registering in the TATP Certificate Program must attend a minimum number of CORE and ELECTIVE workshops in order to qualify for the certificate. Please see the TATP Certificate Programs page for more information.
If you register for a TATP workshop, please ensure that you are able to attend or that you send your regrets with sufficient notice. Typically, TATP workshops have waiting lists and we would like to accommodate as many people as possible.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PAID TRAINING
The TATP Workshop Series and Certificate Program offer professional development for all TAs interested in building their teaching skills and knowledge. Participation in the Workshop Series or the Certificate Program is on a VOLUNTEER basis only and cannot be counted as paid training without the prior knowledge and consent of the hiring department. Please see the job training page for more information. Talk to your department about paid training before attending a workshop and get the form signed by your department before coming to a TATP session. Please note, if you are taking a workshop for paid training, it will not be counted toward the TATP Certificate program.
All workshops begin ON the hour (not at 10 minutes past)
Please visit the UTSC TA website for more information on TA services and events at UTSC.
“CORE” workshops are workshops that CTSI and TATP have identified as particularly critical for a TA developing his/her teaching skills. These sessions will vary from term to term but will focus on foundational topics such as lesson planning, providing effective feedback to students, supporting students, classroom management, fostering academic integrity, building students’ research skills, grading strategies, etc. Attending a minimum number of these sessions will provide TAs with the grounding they need to further expand their teaching knowledge.
“ELECTIVE” workshops are workshops that enhance the learning experience by allowing the flexibility to focus on a particular skill or topic of interest.
