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.
This seminar is free to all SFU graduate students. A refundable $50 deposit is required to hold your space, and you must attend the seminar in its entirety (all three Saturdays) to have your deposit refunded. Once you have paid your refundable deposit, you will be required to answer a set of questions.
