Review updated teaching assistant training policies

The Office of the Provost and the University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) have worked with university officials to update policies for undergraduate, graduate and professional student teaching assistant (TA) training.

Students employed as teaching assistants are important to CWRU’s educational mission. As such, students assigned TA responsibilities must complete training per the Office of the Provost.

Students who completed UNIV400A or UNIV400C with a grade of PASS (P)  between 2015 and 2018 are considered a trained TA at this time.

Students who are undergraduates and are employed as undergraduate TAs (UTAs) are required to attend UTA training Sept. 8. Get details about how to register for the training.

An introductory guide to updated policies is available to help answer initial questions and provide answers to commonly asked questions. Case Western Reserve University academic personnel responsible for identifying and hiring student teaching assistants should familiarize themselves with the complete CWRU policies for teaching assistant training document.

The policies are available on the provost’s website and on the UCITE website.
