TA Orientation

TA Orientation

The department will host an orientation program for Teaching Assistants on Wednesday, September 24 at 3:00 pm in the Lindsay Rodgers Room.  This event is intended particularly for those graduate students serving as TA's for the first time this semester, but is open to all students interested in a discussion on teaching Political Science.
 
The event will be structured as a panel discussion, with both faculty and experienced graduate students from all subfields discussing themes such as lecturing and leading section, professors' expectations from TA's, working with undergraduates, and grading, as well as a discussion of resources available through the university for teaching fellows.  There will also be time for a more informal discussion and question and answer period.
 
Come join us, and feel free to ask any questions you may have about teaching in our department.  Any questions or concerns about the event can be directed to the graduate student organizers, Kevin Elliott (kje2106@columbia.edu) and Ben McClelland (bpm2117@columbia.edu).
