UTSC Job Training Day

Event Categories:


The following TA job training sessions have been scheduled at the UTSC campus. Students must register in advance for their required training sessions at the CTL TA events page (https://ctl.utsc.utoronto.ca/booking/tatp/) or by using the links below. Space is limited. Only students who register in advance will be guaranteed a space. Registration lists will be sent to departments to check; CTL will use the lists to create the attendance sheets students will sign at the sessions.

Departments will inform their TAs concerning the type of training they are required to attend. Often, new TAs are instructed to register for both “General Training” and either “Grading” or one of the four tutorial training sessions.

Attendance is required for the full session (not starting 10 minutes later). Attendance will be reported to the department and the course instructors. If students cannot attend their assigned training sessions, they have the option of attending sessions offered at the St. George campus, if space is available. Visit the Teaching Assistants’ Training Program website for more information: https://archive.tatp.utoronto.ca/events/job-training-days/.

All sessions will be held in AC221, the CTL Learning Lab that is next door to the Academic Advising & Career Centre and two doors from the Library.
