TA Conference



Registration for the 39th Annual TA Conference is now OPEN! Click here to register. We'll see you on September 24th, 2012!


For nearly four decades, the UCLA Office of Instructional Development TA Training Program has put on a campuswide Teaching Assistant Conference in the Fall as a means to help both new and experienced teaching assistants improve their teaching skills. Conference participants receive this assistance through general sessions, a teaching panel, and hands-on workshops that examine a variety of different aspects of teaching at the undergraduate level.

Come to...

      • learn strategies for the first day of class

      • overcome your fear of public speaking

      • ask experienced TAs and professors your questions about teaching 

      • receive feedback on your teaching from experienced graduate students and fellow novice TAs in our microteaching workshops

      • hear how you can incorportate technology in your classroom

      • discuss how to lay the foundations for successful student writing, including giving constructive feedback and grading

      • learn strategies for teaching and grading problem-solving in math and the sciences

      • find out about leading dynamic discussions

Keep in mind...

      • Even if you are not going to be a TA this coming year, as a UCLA graduate student you are welcome to attend the conference in preparation for future teaching assignments.

      • You can register for any portion of the conference.  Come for one workshop or come for the entire day - you decide!

      • All participants must check in on September 24th at Dickson Court South to receive conference packages.  Check-in is open all day.
