Workshops and Certificate Programs

Each semester TAP offers workshops covering a wide range of topics to assist TAs with their continued professional development. These sessions, designed for current and future graduate student TAs, are free. You may attend as many or as few sessions as you wish. 

The workshops are broken down into two Certificate Programs, Improving Classroom Skills and Teaching with Technology. Students who attend at least four sessions in a particular workshop series will receive a certificate of participation. There is no time deadline; a certificate may be earned over one or several semesters. You may earn multiple certificates.

During spring 2022, all workshops will be held remotely via Zoom.
