Graduate Student Services
Welcome graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to teaching at the University of Georgia! This website is designed to provide you with resources and information to help you be successful in your current and future teaching roles. Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars can have a variety of teaching roles at UGA including, teaching assistant, laboratory assistants, graders, and instructors of record. For consistency we will be using Teaching Assistant (TA) to encompass all roles you may have in teaching at UGA.
As TAs, you play a particularly important role in teaching at UGA. Here at the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), our primary goal is to support you in successfully fulfilling this role.
GradTeach is the CTL's community for TAs. Monthly postings on the GradTeach listserv keep TAs up-to-date on TA workshops, events, and services sponsored by the CTL. The associated eLC site hosts resources created by and for UGA TAs, including teaching resources, survival guides, and resources for professional development.
This annual publication is written by and for UGA’s graduate teaching and lab assistants and features articles on teaching that highlight innovative strategies, challenges, and advice. This publication also contains a full listing of all CTL Support Services for TAs and a calendar of events for the full academic year.
While all CTL workshops are open to graduate students, the GradTeach Workshop Series focuses on topics of particular interest to the developing teacher. Topics may include effective teaching presentation, facilitating discussion, lesson planning, and intercultural communication. Registration is strongly encouraged given that space for workshops are limited to 20.
