TA conferences

The Fall and Spring TA conferences are a great opportunity to learn the foundational skills you require to successfully perform your teaching assistant (TA) duties and support student learning. You will have a chance to share ideas with graduate students from all faculties, as you professionally and personally develop your skills and knowledge about teaching and learning in higher education. Each conference devotes one day to support international TAs. View program below for scheduling details. These conferences are free to all TAs and instructors at UVic.

Recognition: Attend six (6) or more sessions during the Fall or Spring conference (cannot be combined) and write a 3-page reflective piece and you will receive a certificate acknowledging your commitment to professional development. See TA Conference Certificate for more information.
