The UTA training seminar will concentrate on two main areas:

  1. Inclusion Training. This will involve preparing students to create a welcoming environment for students with disabilities and international students. We will also cover potential scenarios or difficult moments that UTAs may face regarding these issues in the classroom.
  2. Assessment and Academic Integrity. We will familiarize UTAs with best practices in assessment of student work, as well as academic integrity practices and policy. This will include presenting potential academic integrity scenarios and discussing how to handle them. We will also provide some instruction regarding assignment planning and classroom management to UTAs who have those duties.

To best address these areas according to different UTA responsibilities, we will divide the UTAs into four training groups:

  1. Recitation Leaders
  2. Lab Instructors/Assistants
  3. Graders with office hours
  4. Graders without office hours
