International Graduate Students at U of T: Reflecting on Teaching Experiences

Are you an international graduate student interested in shaping future programming for incoming students at the University of Toronto?

Join our conversation to help inform the development of a Pre-Arrival Teaching e-Orientation program for future international graduate students coming to U of T. This is a great leadership and service opportunity to help support your future peers in their transition at U of T!

Eligibility: We are looking for both current 1st-year international graduate students AND international graduate students who have worked as  teaching assistants (TAs) and/or course instructors (CIs) at the University of Toronto.

Details: This 90-minute structured discussion will focus on your beliefs, experiences, and perceptions of cultural, academic and professional adjustments in U of T’s learning and teaching environments. It will be facilitated by two fellow graduate students. Refreshments and food will be provided and in appreciation of your time. Participation in these focus groups is voluntary and you may refuse to participate in parts of the group conversation or may withdraw from the group chat at any time during the conversation without penalty. The information will be anonymized and used in aggregate to inform future programming.

Location: Conversations will take place at the St. George Campus, either at the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation (4th floor of Robarts Library, 130 St. George St.) or the Centre for International Experience (Cumberland House, 33 St George St).
