Just-in-Time Seminar

The Just-in-Time International Teaching Assistant Seminar is a free three-session course focused on academic culture and communication and essential skills for teaching assistants. The seminar is designed to offer timely orientation and support to graduate teaching assistants who are new to North American academia, and whose first language is not English.

10-week Intensive International Teaching Assistants Seminar

The seminar is free and open to all new and current SFU grad students in all disciplines. Those who expect to have teaching assignments in their first or second term will have priority. You will also participate in the Effective Intercultural Communication online course.

Upon completion, you will receive recognition on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR).

“We learned a lot from this course. I hope to continue to use any chance to improve my English.”
