Training Workshops and Certificates

International Graduate Support

 

All international TA/RA training workshops are free of charge. Participation is optional, but highly recommended by the Office of Graduate Education, in particular if you are new to UW and the American classroom environment. You can also earn the UW ITA Training Certificate if you complete the series of five workshops within two semesters!        

These 5 x 2-hour workshops are a great opportunity for all international GAs to gain more knowledge about cultural differences in the American classroom and other important international GA-related topics. The workshops about presentation skills and pronunciation/intonation have proved to be very beneficial for research assistants too. Workshops are also a great way to get to know fellow GAs and to exchange experiences and best practices with them. The International Teaching Assistant Training Certificate is also a great resume asset.
