  • Welcome to Brock and the Philosophy MA Program

    Dear PHIL MA Grad Students/Teaching Assistants–

    Allow me to welcome you to Brock and the Philosophy MA Program.  I’m sure you’ve all been in touch with Prof. Colman, our GPD.  Every year we run a TA training workshop and meet and greet session in the department.  I would thus like to invite you to a TA training session/workshop as well as our opening of term meet and greet gathering on Tuesday, September 3 at 10am in 273 Glenridge (Philosophy Department).   

    Please see the attached document for some of the issues we’ll be discussing in the TA workshop.  This session is not a departmental orientation, but rather is preparatory for your work as a TA.  We have a small cohort of grad. students this year, but I will try to generate interest from some other programs with new TAs.

    After our morning session, there will be a meet and greet session with faculty, instructors, fellow TAs, and Philosophy majors.  This is an excellent networking opportunity and a great way to begin the academic year with the department.

    I highly recommend that you attend this session, please confirm with me.  It has greatly benefited new TAs each year.

    Best,

    Dr. B.
