TA Training


In a coordinated effort between the Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of Student Experience, TA Training is being offered for the fall term. This training is to enhance the teaching and learning experience at the SPHTM by ensuring skilled and prepared support for faculty and students. 

All aspiring TAs must complete the mandatory training in order to work as a TA. This includes SPHTM students who serve as TAs for undergraduate courses. The 2-Part training covers ethics, academic standards, honor code, payroll, instructional technology, and student-centered teaching practices. 

Part 1 is in Canvas; Part 2 is a live Zoom session with the TA Training cohort.

Upon completion of both parts of the training, students receive a certificate and will be added to the list of students qualified to TA.

Students who have taken this training in the past two years do NOT have to attend again but can.
