TA/TM Well-Being Project

August 25, 2017

As part of the Healthy Campus Community initiative, the TA/TM Well-Being Project aims to support TA/TMs to learn skills for maintaining resilience and well-being in grad school, connect with a network of other TA/TMs, and learn to create conditions for well-being in learning environments through their role as a TA/TM. 

The project consists of an initial one-hour workshop that introduces TA/TMs to one another, and the project and shares resources to support TA/TMs own well-being, and professional development.  TA/TM's also learn tools for creating conditions for well-being within labs and tutorials. The workshop dates and times are listed below. Please register on their website.

  • Surrey: Friday, September 15 at 12:30-1:30 pm in SUR 3040
  • Vancouver: Tuesday, September 26 at 4:30-5:30 pm in Harbour Centre 1315
  • Burnaby: Wednesday, September 27 at 12:30-1:30 pm in MBC 1402
  • Burnaby: Friday, September 29 at 2:30-3:30 pm in MBC 1402 

TA/TMs sign up to receive weekly emails that provide resources and share well-being activities that they can try in class each week and are invited to stay connected through the semester to share their experiences with one another, ask questions, and provide feedback on their experience.
