TA Orientation

Each semester, the Center organizes the TA Orientation for students who want to be teaching assistants. The Orientation helps students understand the duties and core competence of teaching assistants. It includes the theme course “Teaching Assistant System, Role, and Attitude”, experience sharing of senior teaching assistants “Tips for New Teaching Assistants”, and other special courses. To date, the Center has conducted 29 orientations, and a total of more than 10,000 students have participated in the training and obtained teaching assistant certification.
In order to improve the teaching quality of teaching assistants, all teachers who offer liberal education courses approved by the Center for General Education, or common courses and specialized courses approved by the Office of Academic Affairs, must hire teaching assistants who have obtained the certification. During the training and certification process, outstanding teaching assistants share their experiences with new teaching assistants. Moreover, the Orientation helps teaching assistants to build a mindset of ” being a bridge between teachers and students” and develop their professional skills.

【Student Feedback】

“Thank you for organizing this activity to help us soon-to-be teaching assistants learn to be teaching assistants through the lectures. I have learned a lot of practical things, and the activities and gifts are very interesting. It was really rewarding.”
“The activity was only half a day, but it was very full and exciting. I really enjoyed it. The activity, click ‘Like’ to receive a drinking glass gift, was great, and the food bag was really beautiful and generous. The speakers were very good, and students who did not participate have really missed out. “
“I have really learned from the overall activities! The flow of the activities deserves extra points! I hope that there will be other such teaching workshops in the future! Thank you so much for your hard work! The activity was well prepared, and there were many thought-provoking lessons! It’s wonderful!”
