TA Consultant Program
TA Consultants are UC Davis graduate students with significant teaching/TAing experience who receive fellowships and work under the supervision of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. They serve as peer consultants to TAs (Teaching Assistants) and AIs (Associate Instructors) all over campus. The TA Consultants:
- Run the TA Orientation.
- Consult as peers with their graduate student and postdoc colleagues about teaching.
- Develop and deliver workshops on teaching topics.
- Maintain a blog.
- Develop information on topics of interest to grad students and postdocs, such as how to write diversity statements for academic jobs.
- Complete other campus projects of interest to the group.
In addition, TA Consultants engage in ongoing professional development activities to expand their knowledge about teaching and learning.
