Attention: Graduate Teaching Assistants

July 27, 2017 by

The deadline is fast approaching for the annual Teaching as a Graduate Student Workshop for incoming GTAs. Registration by Wednesday, August 9th is required by all that plan to attend.


Teaching as a Graduate Student(formerly known as the August Teaching Workshop) is a day-long workshop series for new graduate teaching assistants, hosted by the Center for Teaching Excellence. The workshop sessions focus on GTAs’ immediate needs.

Topics include:

  • Getting to know your students
  • Teaching the first day
  • Understanding the principles of learning-centered teaching
  • Negotiating potential pitfalls and difficulties
  • Grading effectively
  • Learning discipline-specific pedagogies such as facilitating discussions, leading labs, and teaching foreign languages

These practical and interactive sessions address teaching across disciplines and are designed to help graduate students teach more efficiently and effectively. For questions about the workshop sessions, please contact 

Since 1990, nearly 5,200 GTAs have found this workshop to be helpful in launching their UVA careers and building community. We encourage all GTAs to take advantage of this opportunity!
