Winter TA Orientation: Introduction to Online Teaching
Each quarter, CTL hosts a TA Orientation to prepare graduate students for their teaching responsibilities at Stanford.
This event is highly recommended for all fall quarter TAs. It will provide a foundation in evidence-based online teaching practices for new and returning TAs, postdocs, and other members of the campus community. Registered participants will have access to recorded sessions after the event.
