TA Workshop Series

The TA Workshop Series provides ongoing professional development opportunities for Brock Teaching Assistants, Lab Demonstrators, Course Coordinators, Marker-Graders, and Seminar Leaders. Each workshop offers an opportunity to explore topics related to teaching and learning as part of Brock’s TA community.

TAs are welcome to attend any or all of the workshops offered throughout the Fall and Winter terms. You will earn 1 credit toward the Certificate in Teaching & Learning in Higher Education, a certificate program offered by CPI to TAs who attend 8 workshops.

Who can attend?

TA workshops are open to all Brock Teaching Assistants, Lab Demonstrators, Course Coordinators, Marker-Graders and Seminar/Tutorial Leaders
