The 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 skills to help fulfill those roles.
Additional asynchronous sessions, administered through the Canvas learning management system, include “Role of the TA,” “Getting Started in the Classroom,” “Dealing with Difficult Situations,” and “Preventing and Monitoring Cheating and Plagiarism.”
Teaching assistants are encouraged to attend other Teaching Center workshops (“Introduction to Canvas,” “Canvas for Remote Instruction,” “Incorporating Active Learning into Remote Lectures,” “Instructional Multimedia: Panopto, “Zoom for Remote Instruction”). These are available in both synchronous and asynchronous formats. Please visit Workshops and Events page to register.
