International TA Sessions

International graduate student TAs who identify as not native speakers of English are required by Graduate School Memo 15 to participate in the International TA Sessions at the TA Program. (Note: TAs who received a Bachelor’s Degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution are welcome, but not required, to participate).

The goal of these sessions is to support new TAs in their roles by addressing topics such as teaching methods, education in the U.S., and communicating effectively with students.

The two International TA sessions take place on Friday, September 16, 2022:

  • Getting to Know UW Students: Overview for International TAs:  1:15-2:30 p.m.
  • Panel Discussion with Experienced International TAs:  2:45-4:00 p.m.
