Just-in-Time ITA Seminar

If you are new to North American academia, this seminar will help you get your SFU teaching career off to a positive start. The Just-in-Time International Teaching Assistants (ITA) Seminar is a free, three-session mini-course focused on academic culture and communication and essential skills for teaching assistants.

We know that new international TAs are busy, so we designed this condensed mini-course as a complement to SFU's 10-week intensive ITA training program and the many useful courses available through the Teaching and Learning Centre.

We deliver this program using SFU’s online course management system, Canvas. You will receive a Canvas invitation through email and gain access to Canvas right before the seminar begins. Should you have any questions about using Canvas features, please refer to Canvas Student Guide.

This seminar is free to all SFU graduate students.
