Teaching Assistant Training Program (TATP)

The Teaching Assistant (TA) Training Program offers both online and in-person sessions in the Fall semester. This program is a collaboration between SGS, CITL, TAUMUN and the GSU.

Program objectives include introducing new graduate students and future teaching assistants to the roles, responsibilities, and relevant policies for TAs. An electronic certificate of completion will be provided. *Please note that the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science offers its own TA training program, therefore thesis-based engineering students are not eligible.*
