Teaching Assistants (TAs)

UTM Teaching Assistants' Support at the RGASC

RGASC faculty offer support and specialized training for TAs and their supervising instructors on a course-by-course basis. This support takes on the form of individualized training sessions based on specific department or course needs such as developing assessment tools, grading assignments, classroom management, and team-building. RGASC faculty will lead these sessions in consultation with course instructors.

UTM faculty and instructional staff may contact academicskills.utm@utoronto.ca to arrange for in-course TA support at any time during the academic year.

The RGASC works in partnership with the Teaching Assistants’ Training Program (TATP), a tri-campus peer-to-peer training program for any student working as a TA at the University of Toronto, to provide certification of professional teaching development and support departments in their efforts to provide “basic training” for new TAs. Please see below for more information on mandatory TA training and TATP at UTM.
