Orientations


TA Orientation and Teaching Conference

Every August, the Center for Instructional & Professional Development provides a two-day long orientation for the more than 200 new Graduate TAs and PAs who will begin teaching for the first time at UWM. This special Teaching Orientation Conference familiarizes new teachers with the many resources available to them at UWM. In addition several workshops are offered, providing a forum in which to pose and address questions related to the experience of classroom teaching, teaching assistantships, and project assistantships at UWM. 

The 2013-14 TA Orientation and Teaching Conference took place on August 19th and 20th, 2013. Read more or download the 2013 schedule.
