For Teaching Assistants


Welcome to the Teaching Assistant Programs homepage at the University of Connecticut. Teaching Assistant Programs offers services, workshops and orientations for graduate teaching assistants. Our mission is to support our graduate instructors in all their various roles across campus to ensure success in the classroom for them and for their students.

We offer pre-semester orientations for all TAs both in August and in January, and individual consultations and videotaping are also available upon request.

We look forward to meeting you and would like to help you succeed in your teaching.
