New Teaching Assistant Orientation (NTAO) introduces new teaching assistants (TAs) at the University of Pittsburgh to their roles and responsibilities as TAs and provides them with training in various skills to help them fulfill those roles.

A live, remote event, including a welcome session and breakout session will be held Jan. 6, from 1-3 p.m., via Zoom. Additional asynchronous sessions, administered through the Canvas learning management system, include “Role of the TA,” “Getting Started in the Classroom,” “Dealing with Difficult Situations,” “Teaching Inclusively,” and “Preventing and Monitoring Cheating and Plagiarism.” These modules are designed to be completed at any time between prior the Jan. 6 live event. 

Departments and schools may find it beneficial to recommend or require new teaching assistants to attend the Teaching Center’s other trainings found in Workshops and Events.
