Information and resources: Just for TAs

TAsGraduate TAs are vitally important members of the University of Washington teaching community.  As a TA, you may have one role or a combination of many different roles: designing and teaching your own course, assisting a professor by leading a quiz section, staffing a laboratory, or working in a departmental study center.  This series of online resources is designed with you in mind.  It offers information on some of the most common teaching topics and lists opportunities for professional development.
