Teaching Assistant Orientation

TA Orientation (TAO) 

New TAs are expected to complete this essential introduction to the TA role. Through TAO, you will learn about your new responsibilities, the policies that govern your work, and useful tools to apply in your course.

Summer 2021 New TA Orientation

The Institute-wide training requirement for new TAs supporting in-person and remote courses in Summer 2021 is satisfied by completing the following asynchronous modules in the GT TA Training Canvas course.

Module 1: What you should know about FERPA
Module 2: What you should know about Disability Services
Module 3: What you should know about Academic Integrity
Module 4: What you should know about Online Communication
Module 5: What you should know about Grading

Each of these modules concludes with a short knowledge quiz. Score 80% or higher on each quiz to satisfy the asynchronous TA Orientation requirement. Note: if you remove yourself from the Canvas course, CTL will not be able to verify your participation for your school/department.

In the GT TA Training Canvas course, you will find two optional (but highly recommended!) asynchronous modules:

Module 6: Technology for the Remote TA
Module 7: Teaching Tips for the Remote TA

New TAs can self-enroll using the button below. Returning TAs who have previously completed training do not need to repeat this course.
